When not working, I have a wide variety of interests. I enjoy playing guitar, reading, woodworking, traveling, exercising, and do-it-yourself projects. I cherish time with my family and enjoy the fall football season as both a Cyclones and Packers fan! I am married to my wife, Jill, and together we have one son, Jay, and a daughter, Ellie.
