When I'm Not Teaching
Jeff has always been a local, except when on extended stays in foreign countries. He resides locally with his wife Lori and is the father of 3. His hobbies include fishing for the “Big One” wherever his journeys take him, and participating in cooking classes worldwide.
One of Jeff’s interests is that he is also a licensed auctioneer and owns his own business. He is at ease when talking fast, and selling through the auction method.
