About Rod

Born in Australia, raised in Canada, living in the United States.  
I’ve been blessed to live in three countries and have traveled to many more.  

I play ice hockey two or three times a week, ride my motorcycle anywhere and everywhere I can and find a lot of joy in my grandchildren. 

I love when the light goes on over someone’s head - and they “get it”.
