Personal

I somehow convinced my best friend, April, to marry me in 2012. This adventure of marriage has been one of the greatest joys life could possibly bring, and I couldn’t imagine doing it without her. We live in Johnston with our Australian Shepherd, Zoey.

Outside of work, I enjoy a wide variety of hobbies including (but limited to): woodworking, Ultimate Frisbee, pretending I like exercising, traditional archery, playing bass guitar, singing way out of tune, board games, laughing with friends, and helping others with their projects.
