Interests

When I'm not coding or working with students, I like to hike and ski 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.

There are a lot of dark nights in the winter months. If I'm not coding, I like to dig into the streaming channels. I like watching spy and detective series (plural). I especially enjoy British detectives who solve their problems without guns.
