​When not at work, Jeff enjoys doing all kinds of outdoor stuff, such as hiking & camping, gardening (esp. with native plants and succulents), looking at things through binoculars and telescopes, playing and coaching kids' soccer, and training for triathlons.  He also loves traveling, music, cooking, and good drink (especially in combination with travel, music, and cooking), and thanks to his son, Quinn, he is fascinated by prehistoric animals.
