PERSONAL INTERESTS

I enjoy many activities that promote a healthy lifestyle. I am active in swimming, road biking, triathlons, downhill skiing, recreational hockey, and going to the gym. My wife and I are active in the lives of our three young children and their activities, including piano, swimming, soccer, skating, and dancing.
