When I am not working, I very much enjoy spending time with my wife Kim and our sheltie Cash (and previous dogs Jem and Jordan). In addition, I enjoy tending to our property on the Muskeg Creek; fishing, boating, and underwater photography in the summer; and cross-country skiing in the winter. I also dig the blues and the music of JJ Grey, Michael Franti, and Corey Carlson.

Not surprisingly, I also make occasional TV appearances. The most famous of these is my appearance on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.

I also had a cameo on this Travel Wisconsin piece about Big Top Chautauqua. For some reason, they used mostly clips of my wife and her family.
