He says his hobbies are playing cello, cross country skiing, downhill skiing and playing guitar. “I am helping Christine Roalofs train her team for the Yukon Quest. My brother ran the Jr. Iditarod in 2008 and 2010. I am on the varsity cross country ski team at South High. I play cello with the Anchorage Youth Symphony.
