I grew up in the Toledo area, and I am married to Mindy, with whom we have two adult children. I have always been engaged in the communities in which I live and work. I am an avid outdoorsman, and have been working with Boy Scouts to develop a year round shooting sports program. Through this focus, I continue to develop my shooting skills, and I serve as an NRA Training Counselor in a number of disciplines.
