5. What would you say are the best things about living and working in Dane County?
We have loved our 11 years in Dane County. Our favorite things about living here are the school system (Waunakee) and the American Family Children’s Hospital. We have a special needs child who spends quite a bit of time there and we are extremely blessed to have access to some of the best nurses, doctors, and staff. They are simply amazing.
6. Do you have any secret talents or abilities that people would be surprised to discover?
I have the ability to learn songs on the guitar quickly, as I have played for the last 15 years. I will find a song on the radio that my daughters love, sit down and learn it, and then play it for them as they sing. I was not gifted with the talent of singing but music is a great way to connect with your kids. I also am the best 15-handicap golfer according to my playing partners, who think I am a sand-bagger.
7. What are your guilty pleasures?
I do not have a lot of guilty pleasures but I definitely have an affinity for stealing my kids’ Skittles whenever they get them for Halloween or other holidays. My son will follow me around the house saying, “Daddy, where are my Skittles?” because he knows who took them. I also love to take the kids shopping at Costco, but I don’t tell my wife it’s because I’m feeding them free samples of hot dogs so I don’t have to make lunch.
