A forest ranger.

Hunting, fishing, running, gardening and being my wife’s fourth child.

5. Fun fact about yourself.

My wife and I are high school sweethearts.

6. Meet my family.

My pancakes are delicious because they are made from scratch due to some food allergies in the family.

8. What’s your favorite day of the week?

Pancake day, really.

I would choose somewhere close to home that would allow me to share the experience with my kids.

I want to visit Antarctica (preferably before it melts).
