What would you say are the best things about living and working in Dane County?
Madison has so much to offer with the seasons, the lakes, the arts, and the sports. My wife, Katie, and I moved to Madison as a place to raise our kids. We’ve never second-guessed our decision and have actually convinced several of our family members to relocate to Madison, too.
Do you have any secret talents or abilities that people would be surprised to discover?
I enjoy using my hands and building stuff. I attribute this to my high school and college summers working with a small, family-owned construction company. I’ve built a rain garden, a trellis to train our trees to espalier, and an arrangement of garden boxes for my wife and children to grow flowers and food. Most recently, using my mom’s former ’70s Colnago bike frame, I built my first “fixie” bike just for fun.
What are your guilty pleasures?
Over the last few years I have grown to enjoy days on the lake with a couple beers, a couple friends, and some wakesurfing. I am hoping that my kids will get into it more, so I won't have the guilt part associated with doing it without them!
