I was born in Japan and bounced around a bit as a military brat before my family settled down in the DFW area. Football brought me to Boston where I played middle linebacker and captained the team my senior year at Harvard. After an additional five years in Boston my wife put her foot down on New England winters and we spent the next five years in the San Francisco bay area. We’re now happy to be back in Dallas.
Going for a walk/jog with my wife Laura, our son, daughter and golden retriever Luna, fishing in the local pond, or hitting a few balls at the driving range.
My ideal version of a Saturday morning consists of waking up early to put some meat on the smoker, getting a quick workout in, and playing with my kids outside or in the pool before we host family and friends for a BBQ.

A friend and I built a sizeable lawn mowing business in high school, mowing ~50 lawns per week in addition to landscaping, tree trimming, and sod laying. I have fond memories of these days working outside, with my hands, and amongst my closest friends.
I am a sucker for crossfit-style workouts with weightlifting and cardio all rolled into one. I love the efficiency and the fact that they leverage the most powerful force in the universe: peer pressure.
