What is your connection to the UW Carbone Cancer Center?
My initial introduction came in a past board position with CATCH (Community Around The Children’s Hospital). We had an event many years ago with a presentation by the UW Carbone Cancer Center. Like many, I have numerous friends and family that have battled or are currently battling cancer. I look forward to playing a small part in raising funds for and awareness of such an important organization.

What is your favorite ELB / UWCCC event?
Munich To Madison was a lot of fun. I’m definitely looking forward to Trivia Night with Andy North at The Sylvee this year!

What is something interesting about you?
I studied abroad in Perth, Australia my sophomore year in college and learned to surf (kind of).

Where is your favorite vacation spot?
In my life pre-kids, I traveled the world as much as I could. Gimmelwald, Switzerland is a small village halfway up in the Alps with amazing views and hiking trails. We stayed at a small place called the Mountain Hostel. I can’t think of a more relaxing location.

Everyone has a guilty pleasure.  What is yours?
Late night spicy snacks. My wife tries to keep them “healthy” for me, so right now it’s between Screamin’ Hot Veggie Straws and spicy popcorn.
