A Short Bio

Currently, I live in Snohomish, Washington, about a block from the Snohomish River.  There’s a lot of water around, which is good, since I seem to spend a lot of time paddling on it.  I’ve been married for nearly 5 years to Wendy, who is finishing nursing school this spring.  I’m working at the YMCA, doing some personal training and whatever else they ask me to do- laundry, front desk work, community events, organizing seminars…just about anything.  I also teach kayaking to a group of 5 local high school students.  There’s a nice lake across the street, which is really a glorified water retention pond for the housing development someone built in the flood plane of the Skykomish River.  I paddle there in the mornings, eat my daily Cliff Bar, and go to work at the Y.  In the afternoon paddle again, lift weights or run.  Next fall, I’m starting school again.  I’ll be attending the University of Washington in the fall, doing a Master’s in Education over the next two years.
