What is your connection to the UW Carbone Cancer Center?
My wife is currently in remission after being diagnosed with lymphoma in 2018. Since moving back to the Madison area, she is followed by an oncologist at the UW Carbone Cancer Center. My father-in-law also received treatment at the UW Carbone Cancer Center. In addition to other family and friends who have been diagnosed and/or impacted by cancer, my mom is a breast cancer survivor.

Trivia Night with Andy North

What is something interesting about you?
I was a member of the Wisconsin men’s basketball team from 2006-2011. I also don’t know how to whistle, snap my fingers or blow a bubble with gum.

Turks and Caicos. My wife and I honeymooned there in 2014 and we’re hoping to return someday soon.

Everyone has a guilty pleasure.  What is yours?
The House Burger (and fries) at The Old Fashioned in Madison.
