I had a 30-year career with the US Geological Survey as an environmental microbiologist and molecular biologist before retiring in 2017. I have been married for 36 years. My wife and I have two grown children living with their spouses in Siberia, Russia, and Haifa, Israel. My wife and I enjoy hiking, running 10K to half-marathon distances, sustainable gardening, cycling, and getting together with friends.
I was awarded Boulder’s “Cycling Commuter of the Year” in 2010 and have bike-commuted over 125K miles during my 30-year career. I am a former Boy Scout Scoutmaster for BSA Troop 69, known for its diverse, high adventure activities such as climbing 14ers, ice climbing, and extensive backpacking. I swam and played water polo at the club, high school, and collegiate levels. During the last ten years, I have worked on various community-based service projects. While in college, I coached age-group swimming, winning three league titles in four years and several multi-team invitational championships. As a ‘masters’ swimmer, I have swum approximately 1,000 miles/year from 2016-2021.
