Little Known Facts
- God, my wife Tia, and daughter Emma are the center of my life.
- When not at work, I’m usually perched 20’ off the ground, bow in hand, in pursuit of the “wall hanger” or drifting aimlessly across the lake with my dad catching everything but walleye.
- I am not a big fan of roller coasters, but once rode every single one at Cedar Point to impress my girlfriend, now wife.
