When I'm away from work, my primary focus is spending time with family. Currently, I live in Urbandale with my wife, Laura, our two sons, Henry and Charlie, and our basset hound. In high school, I developed a passion for music and learned to play the guitar, bass guitar, and drums. As I've gotten older, I've pared down to a one-man band and focus mostly on playing the acoustic guitar.
My wife and I love to entertain friends and family at our house for dinner. Since my wife is a culinary arts instructor, it's never a hard sell. On the weekends, you'll often find us doing a home project or working in the yard.
