When my son was a Scout in Troop 125 I became an ASM. I always enjoyed working with the Scouts and going on hikes and camping trips, so when my son became an Eagle Scout, graduated from High School and went away to college, I stayed on as an ASM. I still enjoy working with the Scouts as they advance through the ranks, and going on hikes and camping trips.
I am a software developer; I have worked mostly for companies that service the medical community, from patient care to billing. After college my wife and I joined the Peace Corps. We were teachers for several years in Samoa in the South Pacific. I guess this was the beginning of the volunteer part of our lives. We have lived in Sunnyvale, Seattle, and now live in Sebastopol. I currently work for ClaimRemedi, a Santa Rosa-based company that processes medical claims.
When I'm not working I enjoy camping and hiking (both with Troop 125 and with my family), gardening and cooking.
