About me

Occupation At the end of the day, your job doesn’t define you.
Location Willamette Valley, Oregon, United States
Introduction Life is wonderful.
I am married to my best friend, my Trobairitz, who is my everything and means the world to me. Together we are loving life, laughing, and riding the back roads of Oregon on our motorcycles, pedaling the local hills on our mountain bikes, or hiking through the woods.
Although somewhat of an introvert and misanthrope, I'm a freethinker, and strive to be open-minded, maintain a positive outlook, and I'm always up for a laugh.
I ride year round on my 2016 Triumph Tiger 800XRT, or explore gravel roads and OHV areas on my 2013 Suzuki DRZ400S.
I cherish my quiet time gardening and puttering in the yard, or abandoning suburbia to paddle a canoe, hike, bicycle/mountain bike, or motorcycle camp.
