I am married to Susi, also a RAAM crew member. I have passion for adventure and after listening to Michael talk about his passion to accomplish this goal I became hooked myself to help all I can so I can celebrate after he crosses the finish line in Annapolis. I believe I can bring strength and calm to the group. I have been a teacher for 32 years so I think the adaptability, and flexibility will be a positive. The first thing I will do when I cross the finish line is to congratulate not only Michael for undertaking, and completing such a task, but to thank all the crew members.
