My wife, Erica Bird, and I have three young daughters named Fiona, Rhiannon and Daphne and a son named Evan.
With what free time I have left, I enjoy cross country skiing, and playing hockey and ultimate frisbee. Erica is very much involved in trying to create a
children's discovery museum in Saskatoon.
