Passion for learning, service and adventure


Here is some recent news and personal background on my areas of interest. I am motivated in life to pursue a fairly wide range of interests. I love the learning process and helping others succeed. And I receive energy and direction through active involvement - both in various sports (climbing, skiing, rowing, cycling, etc.) as well with friends and family.
Speed Haute Route 2012 skiing, climbing and cycling!
Click on the photo for a few photos of my 60 km ski/ 180 km bike trip in Europe – fabulous adventure: think heliskiing without the helicopter! The standard Haute Route is a 6 day 6o km alpine ski tour from Chamonix to Zermatt, usually via Verbier. Most people do not complete this challenging route, but with my friend and guide, Michael Silitch we not only completed it in 3 days (stopping at Verbier and Arolla) but then biked back 180 km in 2 days via Sion!
