Interests

When I'm not coding or working with students, I like to hike, ski, paddleboard, and generally explore the forests and mountains in the Pacific Northwest.

I enjoy traveling and taking pictures, but since I acquired a cabin in a valley in the Cascade Mountain range, I spend a lot of time just messing around there. I enjoy taking pictures and sharing them with friends.
