I love spending time outside, especially when I can get to a lake! Whether it be boating, fishing, or spending time with friends and family, I think life always seems a little bit better at the lake.

Interests & Hobbies:

I love spending time with my family. My wife and I are celebrating 10 years of marriage this year, and we just recently welcomed our third child to the world! We like to go on walks, play games, visit the many area lakes and beaches, and enjoy all the Twin Cities area has to offer (zoos, museums, sports, music, theater, incredible food scene).

I love to read, play video games, and play piano. We bought a home in residency, and we’ve been having fun doing house and yard projects to make it our own. We also spend a lot of time with our residency family, hosting each other for meals/bbq/drinks, or meeting with each other at the awesome parks, restaurant patios, or breweries in the area.
