In his own words...
Why are you involved in MMTA?
Because Brandon asked me to. Who could turn that guy down? It has proven to be a socially enriching and rewarding experience.
If you could only pick one activity on the trails, what would it be?
It would be running the trails because I think the trails lend themselves to running more than any other activity.
What is something no one else knows about you?
I'm never done with something even when I say I am.
Building Trails, Building Community.
