My kids play a big role in what I’m listening to and watching. My wife, Cindy, and I have found ourselves to be more “Theater Parents” than we ever would have predicted. Our family recently watched the movie “The Greatest Showman.” To say this soundtrack has become a family theme would be an understatement.

I particularly love being close to the water. Before I had kids, I lived on a houseboat. I also swam for UW in college, and I still meet up with friends from my team at Lake Washington to go for a swim.

I love getting away to Suncadia Resort in Central Washington, especially Ponderosa Pines.
