Personal Information

Personal History

I was born in Wisconsin and raised in the Milwaukee area. I attended The University of Wisconsin and The University of Minnesota. I have three great kids, their significant others, and at last count, three amazing grandkids (they call me "Pappy").  I am also a proud “Cheesehead,” and all that goes with that.


I run, swim, and bike for fitness, and also enjoy sailing, kayaking, skiing, fly fishing, reading, listening to or playing music, hiking, creating pottery, wildlife photography, cooking, and exploring the country in my Airstream.
