I really enjoy geeking out with some new-to-me technology, and can often be found doing so late into the night or on the weekend. When I'm not geeking out, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Traci, and two kids, Freddy and Lulu. In the Winter, I enjoy snowboarding with my kids. During the warmer months, I enjoy cycling, wakesurfing, and camping with my family. I also practice yoga year round.
Occasionaly, I've been known to play drums, guitar and ukulele, but I hesitate to call myself a musician. If you ever hear me play, you'll know why :)
