I'm a physical therapist living the dream in Hood River. I work four days/week then go adventuring (e.g. whitewater kayaking, climbing Mt. Hood and Adams, split-boarding/snowboarding, and, most recently, kite-boarding). Actually, sometimes I say "kite-boarding" but really mean "getting dragged through the water." Still learning, there. :)
I sing and play guitar (and dabble in drums), and you'll typically find me at the Moth Lounge (formerly the Pint Shack) playing open mic night on Tuesdays (and sometimes doing comedy).
I'm fascinated by thoughtful living and healthy interpersonal communication , so I'll put Nonviolent Communication, I Don't Have to Fix Everything, Happiness, Stumbling onto Happiness, Learned Optimism, and That's Not What I Meant!: How Conversational Style Makes or Breaks Relationships.

My patients. I have learned so much from them. I think about the caregiver's burden, mourning and loss, growth and hope, and mental health quite a bit. Believe me: I could share some interesting stories.
I love thinking about exercise routines--whether it's weight-lifting, circuit-training, or plyometrics.
