I was born in Waterloo and have had the opportunity to grow up in the surrounding area. I attended West High School, then later graduated from Janesville CSD. I enjoy hanging out with my dogs, Rizzo and Bryant, as we watch the Cubs season in full. I also enjoy coaching baseball for the Waterloo Optimist Cubs; it has been a true pleasure to coach a team I once played for myself. I tend to spend the summers outside fishing, spring and fall in the fields farming with my step-father, and the winter inside binge watching new T.V. shows. Favorite destination: San Diego/Dallas.
