My family includes my wife of 15 1/2 years (and counting), Melissa, and my daughter, Erika (11, CPA 7th grade).  We live in Tempe, where we have resided since 2004. Before that, my wife and I had also briefly lived in Minnesota and Colorado, as well as Flagstaff, where we met while she was attending NAU.  My home town is Seward, Alaska, but I have also lived in Anchorage, Alaska as a child.
