I am 53 years of age, married to Joleen, and between us we have 2 sons, Ryan Patrick and 1 daughter, Brooke. I have lived in Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater, and the Thurston County area all of my life. My family enjoys football, basketball, baseball, walking and bike riding. This winter, we plan to take up skiing. We currently live in the Wilderness neighborhood of Olympia and our 3 children attend Olympia High School.
For fun, I am a defensive coach at Olympia High School.
