1. What are some of your hobbies outside of work?
I enjoy hitting the pavement for half-marathon training. I'm an avid exerciser, but I also enjoy reading, drawing and writing in my down time. I love to be around my friends. We often get together for movies or to watch the Packer game.
2. What is your favorite thing about your job?
I enjoy being around people that train hard to better themselves and who focus on my instruction to come back from injury.
3. Where did you grow up/where is your family from?
I am a native Wisconsin farm boy who has lived at well over 25 different addresses in the tri-county area before the age 20. My family always seemed to be moving.
4. What's the hottest trend in your industry?
Within schools, the hottest topic is head injuries and concussions. While it has always been at the forefront in my career scope, I now see a lot more support and understanding from coaches and parents.
