Favorite Memory Here at Fox
Every September, in the quad the Fire Department torches a mock residence hall room. I love to watch the faces of students as they "get" the implications of what they are observing. Another September event is the Main Event. Watching 600-800 students participating in an "almost out of control" middle school type sports day is extremely fun.
Favorite place to hang out in Portland/Newberg
I have an event rather than place. The Portland Highland Games is the most fun-kilts, bagpipes, drums, swords, wanna-be Scots, and meat pies. Almost a taste of heaven...
I was married some decades ago to my wife (Heather). We have two outstanding sons (Caleb and Samuel), both taller than us, and anticipating college in the very near future. It might sound trite, but I love any time I get to spend with my family.
Hobbies and other interesting facts
After a few minutes of conversation, you will pick up that I am "not from these parts." We were all born in Canada, but have lived in the US since the late '90s. In a nerdy way, I love to read and watch movies. Truthfully, my boys would say that we live a fairly boring life.
Typical Coffee Cottage drink you order
Big Train Chai-you can't get it at the Cottage!
