What you love about your job: My work takes me to every corner of Alaska during every season, traveling in every possible conveyance, yet still gives me plenty of time at home to enjoy family and a rich Anchorage-centric social life.

Favorite thing about Alaska: My favorite thing about Alaska is that different recreational activities follow each of 4 distinct seasons. Yet no single season is long enough to complete all of the plans made for it, leaving me continuously ready for that season to roll around again next year. Life never gets boring.
