I am a husband and father of two boys. I have been able to serve as a Boy Scout leader to my sons and other boys. I work in the energy sector helping to manage power projects as well as natural gas distribution projects. I enjoy camping, hiking, snow skiing, playing music, cycling, and just hanging out with my wife and boys.
