When not working, what can we find you doing?
Probably at home with my family or in more “normal” times at Miller Park – or whatever they’re going to call it now – for baseball with my friends/family, or exploring different craft breweries with my friends.
What are you passionate about?
Doing the best I can for both my immediate family and my Dairyland family.
How do you Live Engaged?
Most of the free time for my wife and I is spent hanging out as a family with our son. Babysitters are usually hard to come by since both of our parents and siblings do not live in the area. Not a bad thing, of course. And it does, however, create an opportunity for us to be active/helpful in our neighborhood. For example, one of our neighbors has a young son and the husband is in the military. When he is away on missions for potentially weeks at a time, we’ve had her and their son over a few times to make a dinner for them. In addition, I’ve mowed lawns for at least 3 or 4 different neighbors while they were out of town, and we’ve also shoveled sidewalks, watched pets, took care of plants, etc. for vacationing neighbors.
How/where do you volunteer?
Nothing specific currently, but in the past my wife has asked if I’d be interested in volunteering for this or that. We’ve never actually followed through, since it’s tough for us to find arrangements for kids, etc. So, the fact that Dairyland allows for time to be spent volunteering during working hours may be something hugely beneficial towards us being able to volunteer more.
