"The simplicity and beauty of the world around me is my inspiration—a colorful sunrise, a child's innocent smile, a ray of sunshine on golden autumn leaves, a fog-enshrouded forest, an animal's quizzical gaze. For me, the quest to explore the great out-of-doors is akin to a treasure hunt—there's the potential for something new to be found each time I venture out. I'm also most fortunate that my business partner and wife, Dody, shares this passion with me."
