I try to enjoy my life to the fullest. I work hard and I play hard. My closest friends would question the "work hard" part. I love to laugh and have fun but I also have a thoughtful serious side. Some of my favorite things to do are biking, paddling, skiing, snowboarding and other outdoor physical activity. I am also an avid reader and I like playing around on my guitar. I'm equally comfortable with roadside stands or fine dining but I generally prefer to be casual. I'm a serious business person, but I try very hard to keep everything in perspective. I love all kinds of music and live music venues. I enjoy new experiences and I'm generally open to doing almost anything. I am a former chef turned entrepreneur. I am very grateful for the life I'm able to live.
