Favorite drink
I enjoy a good IPA or craft beer. But also TRY to drink as much water as possible.

I love live music and used to run my own local music publication. Some of my favorite places to catch a band include The Boathouse, Hot Fish Club, Dead Dog Saloon & Local on The Water.

Best advice you ever received?
Nothing is impossible. It's just a matter of how much time and resources you want to put towards getting it done.

I've been married to my wife, Heidi, since 2005 and we have two boys, Miles and Mason. We have an Austrailian Shepherd named Mya and a big fat black and white cat named Macaroni.

Favorite Book
I’m more of an audiobook and podcast listener than a reader. But, I love fantasy series like Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and The Dark Tower.

Favorite sports team
Columbus Blue Jackets, Ohio State Buckeyes

Anything else people should know about you?
I love sports and fitness (...even though I'm not in great shape). I am an avid hockey player and have run many marathons and half marathons including the Myrtle Beach Marathon several times.
