Thirty years ago, he transitioned to the nonprofit sector.

He and his wife of 35 years, Kathy, live on Bainbridge Island, WA with two Olde English Sheep dogs; are Mom and Dad to two sons, Ian, and Taylor. He enjoys music and reads a lot. He used to run and cycle…a lot, he completed the LA Marathon and the bicycle Team Race Across America…20 years ago. Since then, he has ‘lost’ ‘some’ fitness. But ‘relentlessly curious’, continues to look for it every day!
