I smile when I garden, eat good food, cook, complete do-it-myself home projects, bicycle, ski, travel, and spend time outdoors and with friends. I like pushing myself to learn new things (like grow produce in Utah in winter, use a speed square, or speak Arabic to name a few). I really like my water resources teaching and engineering work. Life is a great adventure -- full of opportunities to explore new places, learn from friends, and discover how to make stronger, longer-lasting, positive impacts on the world around us. Do you also like to venture? If yes, I look forward to hear from you.
