What would you say are the best things about living and working in Dane County?
There’s just so much happening all the time — the area is really in a growth spurt and the opportunities to ride that wave in business are fantastic right now. Personally, I love riding my bike so living somewhere that invests in recreational bike riding so heavily is great.
Do you have any secret talents or abilities that people would be surprised to discover?
I do a fair bit of digital illustrating, as a freelancer but also just as a creative outlet. I’d never call myself an “artist,” but I have gotten to work with some cool people and businesses in that capacity.
What are your guilty pleasures?
My wife and I share the guilty pleasure of eating copious amounts of Mexican food and drinking margaritas. I like to think that’s been the secret of keeping our relationship healthy, if not necessarily our cholesterol levels.
