I have been a trainer most of my adult life, both designing courses and delivering them. Whether it is an on-site training or virtual I love it when you see the 'light bulbs' light up in a learner's eye. Personally, I am married with two wonderful daughters and a wife who is my best friend as well as guide. We love exploring where we live and being in the Pacific Northwest, there is plenty to explore.
As a family we love camping and spend a lot of time just getting in a vehicle, packed with the basics and just explore, stopping along the way when the mood feels right. We love photography and typically carry our DSLRs with us to capture what we see.
Anything by Ray Bradbury or H.P. Lovecraft. My favorite author though has to be Douglas Adams as he stretches the limits of your imagination, think The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe
Steven Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
