Fondest memory in the Adirondack Park: Raising a family here has been amazing. I feel fortunate for every high peak, rock climb and spring skiing day with my wife and son.
When you’re not working, what are you going? Ideally rock climbing with friends, then going for a swim, then hanging out by a campfire enjoying the night sky and sounds of wildlife.
Favorite food after a long day in the mountains: Burger and a beer
