Dr. Burns grew up in Albuquerque, NM, where he learned to love the outdoors. He enjoys hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, and other such activities. He does NOT particularly enjoy mosquitos and ticks, but is coming to grips with the fact that they will be his constant companions on such adventures. Other interests include playing guitar, singing, juggling, cooking, gardening, bicycling, soccer, racquetball, yoga, and meditation. He and his wife have two young daughters that keep them busy, but also keep offer them a fresh perspective on enjoying life.
