I am into nutrition, health and fitness and enjoy competing in triathlons, including Ironman.

I love to run, bike, swim, hike, and fly-fish; I am fortunate to have fished in waters around the world

I have traveled and live in other countries, which sparked an interest in learning about many cultures and the beliefs, values, and religions within them.
