I’m a nonfiction kind of guy by nature. What I read can be unpredictable, but some of the themes I seem to return to: The experience of war; Crazy, dangerous adventures; Climbing the great peaks of the world; and true crime. When I do turn to fiction, it is very often historical in nature.
Of course I love books, but my true passion is music. Some of my favorite composers are Haydn, Dvořák, and Bartók. Definitely into the classics, but I can just as easily be found listening to the likes of Talking Heads, Nanci Griffith, or any number of world music artists.
Away from work, I enjoy spending time with my wife in our Wilsonville home. We both love to travel and don’t do nearly as much of it as we would like. Other things I love but don’t have enough time to do: Canoeing, fly fishing, bird watching, astronomy, perfecting my German (or at least getting better at it), genealogy, and reading. Favorite food: Italian. Favorite drink: Bone dry gin martini.
I look forward to helping you discover great things to read, watch and listen to!
