Hi. I have been a Gig Harbor resident since 2008 after living the first half century of my life in various locations east of the Mississippi River. I am a father of 4 - three of which are grown and living happy and productive lives on the east coast and one of which is enjoying growing up in Gig Harbor. I am a management consultant specializing in crisis management, emergency preparedness, business continuity and disaster recovery. In my spare time I write poetry and short stories; enjoy hiking, kayaking and the outdoors; and, can be found playing volleyball at the Y on Monday and Wednesday nights. I am active with the Rotary Club of Gig Harbor Midday and am the current Chair for the club's Community Service Committee and the Co-Chair for Harbor Hounds. We love it here in Gig Harbor and plan to stay for a long, long time.
