Achievement you are most proud of, career or other
Maintaining close ties with good friends throughout the years.  It’s easy to lose touch as life gets in the way.

Notable pet
One of my pets, Lola, is a former co-worker.  She is a rescue from Wildwood who actually lived in Metroparks Hall for a few months as an exterminator.  At the end of her brief career, she came to live with me.  A few years later, she was joined by Pedro, another rescue cat from Wildwood.

What is something few know about you?
Even though I believe there is a scientific or environmental explanation behind reports of paranormal activity, my favorite annual event is the Ghosts of Providence Lantern tour at Providence Metroparks.

What brought you to Metroparks?
When I left Microsoft I decided I did not want just another job. I wanted my work to have meaning on a larger scale.  Metroparks Toledo allows for that and does so in a great environment.

Your favorite park visited?
Of all the parks I have visited throughout the United States, Providence Metropark is my favorite. It feels like home to me. It is actually one of my favorite places on earth.
