By day I’m a software architect at a large Bay Area company.

By night (er, on weekends) I like to hike, 4×4, geocache and explore.

I’m 50+, male, and have lived in the Bay Area since 1983.

I only started hiking less than 10 years ago, and seriously just a very few years ago.

In 2010 I hiked over 500 miles! In 2012 I hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon … twice.

I volunteer for Santa Clara County (teaching geocaching classes), for the Bay Area Ridge Trail, and for other groups.
