Californian. Born and raised on a steady diet of team sports, public schools, individual sports and gravity events. Schooled in Chico, Bend, Truckee, Reno, Santa Cruz and San JOse. Now a teacher, free time consists of death defying home improvement projects, a personal allowance (determined by my wife), and a bunch of training that keeps me young. A 5th grade elementary educator who values a 3.5 mile commute on an old school Schwinn 10 speed, when the weather is good I have been known to go a month at a time without filling my gas tank. Cest la vie!
