Hobbies and Passions

Above everything, I enjoy getting out with my dog and husband and going to remote places. We have a six-year old german shepherd named Kesugi (Ancient One) who loves to get out and explore in the nearby deserts and forests.



We got Kesugi after we finished backpacker through the grizzly filled mountains of Alaska's Kesugi Ridge. Kesugi is a Tanaina word that means The Ancient One.

Simone is a rescue from the AZ Mastiff society. We think she's about 2 years old, but we're not sure. She's got a lot of fear aggression and anxiety about just about everything, but she also has a lot of love to offer.

Board Games

I love supporting creators of board games and rewarding them for the time and effort they put into the design and systems. I've backed 8 boardgames on Kickstarter since 2017.
