I love to fish for salmon, experience the outdoors, and relax by woodworking & riding motorcycles. I live the typical Oregon lifestyle: when the salmon are running, the work has to wait!! I run my own appraisal business, specializing in government acquisitions (eminent domain), and hold appraisal designations from the Appraisal Institute (USA) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (London).
I have very fond memories of Paly and the friends I met in Palo Alto growing up. It was difficult to leave Paly, but you never know what looms on the other side of the fence.
Was raised in Palo Alto. Dad retired during my Junior year at Paly and moved us all to Oregon. After experiencing culture shock, I fell in love with the state. At Paly, I was active on the tennis team and the band (under the direction of the infamous Mike Britt).
