"I was raised in Minnesota and I am happy to still call Minneapolis home with my wife, Julie. We are the proud parents of two college-age children. I am a Bruce Springsteen fanatic but I treasure classical music, especially Beethoven. I enjoy camping, hiking, and travel, and I spend many days year-round running around the Minneapolis chain of lakes. I love a good book and a strong cup of coffee!"
