As the training history above demonstrates, I am partial to the Pacific Northwest. More specifically, though, I have had such great
experiences at OHSU that I've never felt the need to leave! I am originally from Arizona, and was happy to trade the heat and sunshine
for a few clouds and survivable daily temperature. Though I was a University of Arizona Wildcat, I happily betrayed my loyalty for a
much better football team (hint: it's not the Beavers). My girlfriend and I love living in Oregon, enjoying the Portland restaurants,
the wine country, and the fly-fishing. We're hopeful that one of these days we'll even catch a fish! When I'm not working or fishing,
I'm usually hanging out with my 9-year-old daughter Gretchen. She teaches me a little bit everyday (though I'm afraid not much about fishing)...
