Off the Job

Born and raised in Oregon, Garrett enjoys doing typical Oregonian activities with his wife, Labrador Retriever and Golden Retriever. During the summer months, Garrett and his family can typically be found hiking, camping, and paddleboarding. While Garrett and his wife usually prefer to stay on the paddleboards and out of the water, their dogs tend to try to make them fall off. When Garrett wants to do less relaxing activities during his time off, he enjoys snowboarding, mountain biking, or more recently, perfecting his Pickleball skills.
