After 20+ years of fine-tuning, he’s learned to spot setups with low-risk, high-reward probabilities that are perfect for the wandering lifestyle. His thirst for adventure and willingness to step out of his comfort zone has allowed him to enjoy some epic adventures with his family. He and his wife of over 20 years have two boys. Together, the four of them have traveled the US, each on their own motorcycle. They have enjoyed traveling in motor homes and custom vans and have even traveled the east coast via a sailboat. In general they have tried to spend as much time together as possible before their boys grew up and moved away. They live life to the fullest, and show no sign of stopping.
