Chris Wheeler

What I Love:

I love being outside! I could be riding a bike, fly fishing, hiking, playing pond hockey, paddling a canoe, or sitting by a campfire—it doesn't matter, I love them all equally. I like music played at a very high volume. I also love sharing these experiences with other people. I like teaching and learning, laughing, or just sitting silently and enjoying a nice view. Oh, and beer... I like beer.
