Hobbies

Sr. Volunteer at MayWeHelp.org where we develop custom equipment for those with special needs. I have a woodshop in my garage (that I refer to as my “Zen Zone”) where I go to build/create/start (sometimes finish) various projects. Recently, I built a couple custom desks for my kids for their remote learning. I very much enjoy home improvement/repair and pretty much anything that needs to be fixed and/or restored. I love documentaries, especially anything about physics and the sciences. Finally, family time with my kids and soon-to-be step-kids. 

Fun Fact

I’m a former HS wrestler, and for two years I was whooped in practice daily by a future two-time MMA featherweight champion.  I’m oddly allergic to bananas and cucumbers.
