When not in the office, I enjoy traveling, boating and biking with my wife, Ellen. Also we enjoy cooking for family and friends.

Our children and grand children keep me busy as well.

In my personal down time I enjoy reading business related material and autobiographies. I also like listening to music. We take advantage of the free concerts offered all over the Akron/Canton area in the summer.
