Life Off Campus:
I am an avid cyclist (roadie :)), whitewater kayaker, and skate skier. Some days, I think I am a gourmet and others a gourmand but either way I am a big fan of using meals to build community and family. At home, we grow food year round in our gardens and four season greenhouse. We are the proud owners of Huntington, Vermont’s first vineyard (named Briefly Complex and unfortunately it is an accurate name) and my wife and I have hosted a dinner party every 15th of the month for the last 17 years! Culinary delights are often found often in my classroom.
