  • I was a nerd in school. I won statewide awards in Latin and West Virginia history, was a member of Academic Bowl/Quiz Bowl/Math Field Day/Knowledge Master teams, and did all the geeky music things.
  • I love backpacking, and hope to hike the Appalachian (app-uh-latch-un, thank you very much!) Trail at some point, even if just in short sections at a time.
  • My wife and I spent our first wedding anniversary moving to Dayton. While it was exciting to move to a new place and start a new job the next day, I can’t say it was exactly romantic!

  • I taught my cat, Willow, to sit and give a low five on command. She cooperates 75% of the time.
  • I have known the American Sign Language alphabet since elementary school and have recently started learning more.
  • In high school, I participated in an American Institute of Architects competition and earned first place for my landscape design.

  • I was introduced to the kettlebell in 2010 and it was love at first swing. I am Hardstyle Kettlebell Certified (HKC) as of October, 2014.
  • I've jumped out of a perfectly good plane, twice; have a 1977 Suzuki 650XS and a 2003 Suzuki V-Star 1100, because who doesn’t need two motorcycles; and I’m a licensed open-water diver. It’s been suggested that I may enjoy an adrenaline rush.
  • I inherited a love of old things with character from my Gram, who was an antique dealer. I follow firmly in her packrat and decorate-by-clutter footsteps, and have a great love of hats thanks to her.
