I love being a dentist, talking with his patients, caring for them and listening to their life stories and adventures. I have a particular fondness for music, enjoying all the new music technology always on the lookout for the latest artists. Other interests include sports, cars, good wine and ongoing love-hate relationship with golf and tennis. My main focus centers on my family; my wife Mary Ellen and I have lived in Olympia since 1994. We share the care and love of our two children Hanna and Jackson. Hanna attends Gonzaga University in Spokane and Jackson attends Capital High School. We are all actively involved in our faith at St. Michael Parish, and in numerous community activities.
