Biographical Info

TEAM PNW-ISA

Hometown: Spokane, WA

Why are you riding the STIHL Tour des Trees?
I am riding because 25 years ago my dear friend Jim Clark was kind enough to invite me on an adventure of bicycle riding from Seattle to Oakland; at the time I did not know what I was getting into, but the original ride was one of the best vacations I ever experienced. Through Jim and others of the ISA I have come to appreciate the immense value of trees and I simply wish to donate my time and energy to help TREE Fund (http://www.treefund.org/) achieve its mission. I recall the quote by Nelson Henderson: The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit. Although I may never directly benefit from TREE Fund’s work and mission, I will relish the idea that perhaps my efforts helped others.
