What you may not know about me

Is that I own a 1972 Porsche 914 that I use for auto crossing. That’s a timed competition that emphasizes safe competition and active participation. One at a time, drivers navigate through a defined course of cones on either a sealed or unsealed surface. Also, in my 20s and early 30s, I was an endurance athlete and participated in triathlons and long-distance cycling events.

What I really like to do

Is spend time outdoors — playing sports, fishing and experimenting with new recipes for my smoker. Indoors, I’m a prolific writer and book nerd.

My perfect day

Would start by getting up early and going fishing with my five kids. Then I'd come home in time for lunch and spend the afternoon with my entire family. Finally, the perfect ending to my perfect day would be spending the evening with my beautiful wife, Shawna, enjoying  a nice dinner and a movie.
