**Personal Interests:**

]]>Family: My wife Megan (a Mental Health Therapist) and dog Zuma (a ball fetching extraordinaire) are here in Talent. My older brother (an Air Traffic Controller) lives in San Jose. The rest of our immediate family is in Klamath Falls, Oregon and Castro Valley, California.

Friends: Unfortunately all of my travels have left me with some friends that are far away. I try to make several trips yearly to see old friends. The next couple are for a Duck's game in Colorado and a BBQ / Bad Golf Tournament in California.

Sports: Back before I was old and fragile, I played rugby and boxed. Now I limit myself to rec soccer, softball and pickup basketball. I spend too much of my free time watching or reading about my 49ers, A's, Warriors and Ducks.

**Personal Interests:**

]]>Family (My wife Laura, daughter Lia, and son Logan).

Organic gardening (Growing my own salads and vegetables is a great way to get fresh air and take a break from all the paper work).

Listening to music (Note that I said "listening", NOT "playing". I have NO musical talent -- don't let the long hair fool you).

Ever since I took a computer graphics programming class (back in the late '80s) I've been fascinated with the vast improvements in computer games. I do enjoy playing some of them, but I'm mostly ogling over the graphics.

Even though this may sound like work, I actually enjoy using my computers (both Windows and Macintosh) to create things (lecture notes with movies, screen shots, comics, interactive quizzes, etc.).
