Interests: In our spare time, my wife and I enjoy hiking and canoeing. As you might imagine, my interests in recreational activities of this kind, coupled with my professional interests in geology, have resulted in a deep involvement in conservation issues. In that regard, I serve as Vice Chairman of the Rindge Conservation Commission.
