I love biking and staying in shape. I also enjoy fishing and shooting skeet and clays. It takes skill and a keen eye for clay pigeon shooting. It’s like playing golf with a shotgun and I love every minute of it. My wife and I are brand new grandparents to a beautiful granddaughter. We are very excited to help our daughter and son-in-law on their journey as new parents. I am a father to all girls: Hannah, Liz and Sarah.
