He loves being a fan during football season, but sneaks in some coaching there, too, when he can.
He lives with his lovely wife of 16 years, and his 10 and 13 year-old sons. He loves exploring all this area has to offer, making his house into a warm family home, and going on cool date nights with his wife. We feel fortunate that he has time for us Lady Docs!
