My Website


Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Skiing, skateboarding, model airplanes

What I do for a living:

Well, I've been an engineer for 36 years. Recently laid-off so I am unemployed. But my financial adviser says I don't need to work, so I might be retired. But my wife wants me to work, so I guess I'm unemployed..... It depends on who you ask.

Home Mountain (where I ski most often):

Mt Hood Skibowl; Timberline Lodge

Number of days I ski in a year:

Well it used to be about 15 days/year, but this year I don't have a job so I think I will at least double that. This year, I will go on the "Oregon Ski Safari" to celebrate my 60th birthday and my 50th year of skiing. Every Area. Every Lift. Every Run.

Terrain or conditions I like to ski the most:

The whole mountain.

Gear I use:


The regions where I typically ski:

Oregon. Occasionally I take a trip to Colorado because that's where I grew up
