Interests

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family, going for long walks on the beach at sunset, curling up next to a fire with a good book, and getting caught in the rain! I'm not into yoga or health food.

Ok, I stole those interests from a popular tune and other than the family bit, they don't describe me.

My wife Kari is a 4th grade teacher and our boys David and Drew are 15 and 13, respectively. I spend most of my spare time at the hockey rink, baseball field or the gridiron watching the kids play or volunteering in some capacity.

I also like reviewing homework, an occasional bottle of Dr. Pepper and reruns of Cheers.
