Yes, that is my picture from 8th grade--Columbia Junior High, 1972.
I grew up in Columbia Heights, MN (a suburb of Minneapolis). After graduating from college I moved to Aspen then Crested Butte to ski. My family moved to Fort Collins in 1996. I began teaching at Lesher Y2K, and I've been here ever since.

I help coach tennis in the fall, and I coach golf in the spring.
My favorite book is the one I just read, the one I'm reading currently, or the one that's next on my list. As of today, those books are Song of Fire and Ice: Dance with Dragons;
The Practice House; Salt to the Sea.
