Fun Facts
I love spending time with my wife and children, especially outdoors. We go camping, biking and hiking as a family several times a year, taking trips to the beach and to the lake. My favorite sport is snow skiing. Most guys can tell you about their best round(s) of golf – I’d prefer to tell you all about my “Top 5” days on a ski hill. I also enjoy hunting, and I try not to pass on any opportunity to go shoot skeet, trap, sporting clays or ducks.
