A couple of years ago, after attending WGA events, I decided that it was time to start volunteering. A few of the events I have helped out at are:

I co-hosted the 2011 Lonely Cache Game Event| Back to the Cattails and will co-host the 2012 WGA Event Lonely Cache Game| Groundhog's Day on February 2nd.

Volunteered at the WGA table at the Neenah Historical Society in October, 2012 with Jim (JimandLinda) and Sherry (WisconsinHibiscus).

In January 2011 I took over as the WGA’s Social Media Coordinator which I have really enjoyed. Just about everything you see on the Facebook page and the Twitter feed is my fault.

A little background information about me:
I first heard about geocaching back in 2005. It sounded like a great way to get my wife (Keri) and kids outside. We have had a lot of great geocaching adventures over the years. Some of our best vacation memories are the “hidden” spots we have come across while searching for Tupperware. These days many of our weekends are spent traveling around Wisconsin to watch our daughter play soccer and I always find a cache nearby to grab. Our children are now getting older (Emma 17 and Josh 22) and are off doing more of their own things. My wife and I are already planning some caching trips for just the two of us.

I have worked in the Quality Department for Kimberly-Clark’s Neenah Nonwovens Facility since 2001. I moved to the day shift a couple of years ago which has opened up my weekends for more caching. My wife would tell you I am a bit obsessed with the sport. I always start my day with a visit to the WGA forums and check in throughout the day to keep up with what’s going on in the world of caching. My garage workbench contains an array of caching supplies and containers in progress.

Life is like geocaching: you have to keep learning and experiencing new things. When you are out caching, there is always something to be discovered. There are new trees to climb (and fears to overcome), bogs to slog through, rocks to squeeze between, puzzles to solve, hides to find, people to meet and events to attend. Just like life, there’s something new every time you go out, you get from it what you put into it and it’s always better when you can share it with others. I have really enjoyed geocaching over the years and have met a lot of great people.

After volunteering and co-hosting events, I feel I could further give back to the geocaching community by serving on the board. Reading through the WGA bylaw purposes I see my personal beliefs are the same as what is listed. We need to provide new and exciting social times and through education of geocachers and our communities, we can work to protect our rights to geocache in this state that’s so full of great sights and experiences.

Thanks for taking the time to get to know me a little and I look forward to answering all your questions.

Looking forward to answering all your questions.

For those of you who haven't met me yet, I thought I'd add a picture to put a name with the bio and questions I've been answering.
