      What are your interests outside of work?
      I am an avid climber and mountaineer. I have summited the tallest peaks in Africa (Mt. Kilimanjaro), Europe (Mt. Elbrus in Russia and Mt. Blanc in France), as well as peaks in the Cascades, Ecuadorian Andes, Italian Alps, and over 20 “14ers” in my native Colorado. After climbs, I’m in constant pursuit of the Bay Area’s best taco.
