Doing good in a community that I’m passionate about. It’s really satisfying to help community members figure out how to improve their home’s comfort and efficiency.
Tell us about your house.
We rent a 1950s Colonial close to Greenleaf Park. It’s a great neighborhood, but the house is a bit of a project. The city has a pair of storm drains that don’t connect to sewer infrastructure, but instead drain to our backyard, creating a lot of problems indoors with excessive moisture. I consider it my education in dealing with home comfort issues.
What do you do when you’re not working?
I’m usually pretty busy trying to keep up with my 2-year-old son. I alternate between chasing him around town while he blasts along on his balance bike, and towing him along in a bike trailer, which he gets a kick out of. We also try to take advantage of all the natural areas around town, so you can often find us hiking, birdwatching, or camping.
When you were young, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Elementary School: Quarterback for the 49ers (I hoped to take over when Joe Montana retired). High School: Photographer for National Geographic.
