Favorite TV show?
This is a tough one, and it changes almost every season, but right now I’m going with the BBC's Sherlock. It's just too good.

Favorite band?
For many years it was U2 and then my wife took me to a Dave Matthews Band concert at Alpine Valley and things have never been the same.

Favorite movie?
This is an easy one. It doesn’t get much better than Raiders of the Lost Ark... well, maybe Jaws. Ok, it's a tie.

Do you have a personal motto or quote that inspires you?
"You're only as good as your word." Character, honesty, and personal responsibility are very important to me and are traits I look for in other people.

Do you have a hobby or collect anything special to you?
Does going to the movies count as a hobby? A movie theatre is one of my favorite places in the world. It has been since I was a kid. There's something magical about it. It helps when the movie is good, but if it's not, I don't mind much, I just love the movies.

Favorite food?
I have to say sandwiches. I's a category and not a specific food but there are just too many delicious sandwiches out there for me to pick just one.

Pizza. Sausage, pepperoni or everything on it?
I have only two rules when it comes to pizza. No fish. No fruit.

I've been married to my amazing wife Kellie since 2005. We have twin boys.
