Notable outdoor adventures: I’ve fished and skied all over the continent, including British Columbia, Alaska, Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Colorado, Montana, Washington, Oregon, New Hampshire and here at home in the Adirondacks.

Fondest memory in the Adirondack Park: Can’t pin down just one…but generally, I have fond memories of the ability to wander out my back door into one of the largest wildernesses in North America and explore the rivers, brooks, mountains and snow.

 When you’re not working, what are you doing? Painting, cooking, skiing, seeing live music, fly fishing and longboarding.

Favorite food after a long day in the mountains: Burgers at The Ausable Inn
