I am an advocate for positive social and political change. I have been a river guide,kayak instructor,ski and snowboard instructor, cop and search and rescue volunteer, musician, biologist and photographer. After RA dx in 2004, life became difficult and limited many of these interests and vocations, but my stubborn, strong spirit still persists. I volunter with several adaptive programs as I can to help other disabled people learn skiing in the winter and enjoy rafting in the summer. I ride motorbikes when my body allows it.
