He has been married for two years to his beautiful wife who is a high school math teacher. They love going on adventures and traveling the great northwest. He likes going to restaurants and trying new things (he recently became an Elite member on Yelp! which gives him more motivation to check out new spots). He really enjoys playing basketball, ultimate frisbee, soccer, lacrosse, spike ball, and volleyball. He is a certified high school soccer and basketball referee which allows him to make some money for gas and stay in shape.
