Deserted island wish list:
Give me Kauai, family and good friends, good books, good wine and a little suntan lotion and I’ll be fine for quite awhile.
What do you do to relax when you’re not at working?
Hiking, skiing, spending time with my wife, reading. I’m a science fiction fan, a great fantasy world that’s the opposite of my 9-5 life.
Favorite vacation:Hanalei Bay on Kauai
