About Me

  • I was born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin. I have enjoyed all aspects of our state but have been lucky enough to travel and live elsewhere. I feel privileged to have returned the state in 1995, living here and raising my family since that time. I continue to enjoy outdoor activities throughout the state and beyond. I am also an avid Badger and Packer fan.
