I have always enjoyed the outdoors and staying physically fit. When I am not working, I enjoy fishing, boating and working out. I am an avid Kansas City Royals and Chiefs fan but my favorite team is the University of Iowa Hawkeyes. I also enjoy driving my 1969 Camaro whenever possible.

Community participation

I have been active with the Kansas City, MO Chapter of Big Brother/Big Sister since 2002 and I recently joined the Lee's Summit Chamber of Commerce.
