Occupation: Maintenance mechanic (taking the summer off).
Favorite outdoor sport: Softball. And I love fishing and hunting.
Favorite outdoor memory: Oh, boy. There are so many. Going to St. James Bay - my brother got a hook in his back. My dad had to pull it out with pliers. (laughs). I like going fishing with my two sons and two daughters. Just hanging with them.
Close call: Tying up a boat on a dock in Sitka when I was 15. Getting knocked out and hanging by my feet from the cables. My dad dragged me out.
