My job has allowed me to travel to some great cities within the continental US that I probably otherwise wouldn't have gone to (well except Orlando to say "hi" to Mickey and the gang). Some of the cool places I've gotten to travel to include - Boise, Idaho, Washington D.C., Minneapolis, Minnesota, Chicago, Illinois, and Orlando, Florida. Of course work doesn't always let me travel to great places, I've had to pleasure to spend a few weeks during the winter in Rochester, NY.
Outside of work I enjoy reading, hanging out with friends, going to the range, and working out. I really would like to learn how to golf one of these days. For now, I just stick to mini-golf.
In college, I threw the shot put and continued throwing after college for two years. I gave it up due to chronic pain I developed on my throwing side. I was able to stay connected by coaching through graduate school and still follow some of my training mates and competitors as they continue their careers.
Family and traditional values are very important to me. I'm a Catholic and a Conservative. I keep up-to-date with current events and am very knowledgeable on the issues. I'm always open for debate.
