We treat everyone with respect and high integrity. The way I behave everyday reflects on myself and every other member of the pack. This is both a privilege and a responsibility that I take very seriously.
Spending time with family, hiking, biking, skiing, running, backpacking and of course volleyball.
There are no secrets to success - it is the result of hard work, preparation and learning from failure.
