    In His Words

    I have always loved writing and literature. I often feel that we don't completely know what we think until we write it down, and a good book shows us that we are never alone, that there are timeless and universal truths about the human condition.

              At the same time, I find books and academics can take us only so far. I am an avid sports fan, I hike almost constantly, and I paddle my sea kayak to distant islands when I can. I coach soccer, and I have a soccer juggling record that no GSA student-athlete has been able to beat (8,500).

              I'm crazy about integrity, consistency, commitment, and persistence.
