I earned my BA from UNI and my Master's from the University of Colorado. I live in Colorado Springs and am married to Liz, an occupational therapist. I am President of a group of non-profits serving adults with disabilities and at-risk youth. I've taught kickboxing, and completed a marathon and several half marathons. Love country music and travel as much as possible, including to the Olympics in Greece. Some thrills have been sky diving over the Rocky Mountains and paragliding off the Swiss Alps.
