My number one interest is spending time with my wife and two daughters. I also enjoy most outdoor activities such as running, water skiing, wakeboarding, wake surfing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, scuba diving, hiking, and camping. I've always been a huge Bulls and Cubs fan, and I enjoy attending games regularly.
