Now, switching from the professional third-person voice to the real-life first-person voice…
I live in an RV with my wife Kellyn who works at Microsoft. Together, we’re traveling throughout North America, experiencing life in all of the different parts of this beautiful country. Kellyn blogs and tweets as DBAKevlar, and we both blog about our life as RV nomads at DancesWithWinnebagos.com, and I am one very lucky guy to call her my wife.
I have two children, my son Peter and my daughter Marika, both of whom successful and wonderful adults, both living in the Denver area. I am also proud of Kellyn’s son Sam (who is married living in South Carolina), her daughter Rhys (who is a student in Denver), and her son Joshua (also a student in Denver).
I’m on Facebook, but I keep that separate for my personal life, and I do not “friend” professional acquaintances unless they have become part of my personal life. Instead, I’m glad to make and keep my professional contacts on LinkedIn.
For fun, in winter I snowboard the steeps and deeps, in summer I (road) bicycle long distances, and I play squash in any season when I can find facilities and someone of like mind.
