I am a retired high school teacher and basketball coach, and I now have time in my life to follow my passions. Some are very interconnected…I love to hike and I love to take photographs, and living in Oregon has given me many opportunities to do both. I also love to garden, to make music, to listen to music, to bicycle, to follow the Oregon Ducks, and to write.  I’ve lived in Eugene since 1977, am married with two grown children, and two grandchildren.
