Special Interests and Activities:

I was born on an Iowa Hawkeye football Saturday here in this hospital and have been an avid fan of the Hawks ever since! I also enjoy parenting a couple of fantastic young women especially in their academic, musical, and theatrical activities. My wife and I both enjoy making music… I sing and play tuba. My fitness loves are racquetball, golf, and running.
