Skiing, backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, sitting looking at a beautiful view and reading the Sunday paper over a cup of tea on a lazy weekend morning are some of my favorite ways to pass the time. I also love to dance - Argentine Tango and swing dancing are my favorites, but any kind of dancing is great. I dabble in contra and salsa as well. I find peace carving backcountry tele turns in fresh powder or reflecting outside my tent in remote wilderness. I love the ocean (I grew up in Maine) and get near it or on it whenever I can. I laugh often, smile easily, and love witty banter. People often think I'm always in a good mood and most of the time they're right. My fun job is coaching a high school springboard diving team. I make money as an air quality specialist.
