My wife and I (both 2000 Findlay High School graduates) returned to Findlay after attending the University of Mississippi and spending time working in Dayton, Ohio. I grew up nearby in Forest, Ohio, and spent my early years helping on my grandfather’s farm, working at grain elevators, and generally enjoying the outdoors. I’m now the father of three girls, and can be found on the sidelines of gymnastics, dance, swim, and other various activities throughout the year. When I’m not working or cheering on my girls, I still enjoy getting outdoors: camping, hunting, hiking, or just reading a good book.
