FAVORITE QUOTE:  
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming 'Wow! What a Ride!' " - Hunter S. Thompson

PROUDEST MOMENT:
I love to watch my son succeed and be happy.  I am always proud when he sets, then achieves his goals.  Recently he set out to learn a McTwist (540 degree rotation in the air on his skateboard). When he finally did it, he was so happy it was contagious to everyone around him.

FAVORITE OUTDOOR ACTIVITY:
Skateboarding!  I think it is the MOST fun (for the money) a person can have.  (I bet I would like Wing Suiting and Paragliding, but I have not afforded the chance to try that, yet.)

FAVORITE FILM AND WHY:

Not sure of a favorite film, but I am partial to anything 1980's John Hughes (Sixteen Candles, Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller, etc.).

I LOVE WORKING FOR THE RESTORE BECAUSE....I can see the good I do each day; how my contributions make a tangible difference in my local neighborhood.  That and the amazing group of staff and volunteers I get to work with at WCR each day.  They make it easy for me to get up and go to work each morning.

IF I COULD CHANGE THE WORLD IT WOULD BE: 
To reduce greed and shrink the gap between the have's and the have not's.  I view disparity of wealth as one the greatest, yet most solvable problems facing humanity.
