Tasty Tidbit:  I have a hard time sitting still when there is any outdoor activity in sight. I guess you could say, I am the human equivalent of a golden retriever; as I seem to be always chasing something.

All my life I have loved being around water and the trees. In fact, I love the water so much that I started my career as a lifeguard.

Now I spend my time waterskiing, wake surfing, and biking in the summer and snow skiing all winter.  When life does not find me pursuing one of these passions, you will find me chasing a puck around an ice rink in an adult hockey league or even chasing a little white golf ball around a big green space.

If I do sit down, it is generally to watch the Michigan State Spartans chase a puck or ball of one form or another.  I love the fact that I am a third generation Spartan!
