When I'm not here on our gorgeous campus, I love to hike with my family and row, and I enjoyed being part of a master's advanced sweep rowing team a few mornings a week in an 8-person shell with the Los Gatos Rowing Club. Traveling, visiting museums, and trying to learn guitar, piano and ukulele are also favorite pastimes.
