Something People May Not Know About Me: I moved to Fort Wayne because of Parkview Field, moved three blocks away from the ballpark shortly after it opened, and met my wife at Parkview Field. It's safe to say this place will always be a very special place to me!
Hidden Talent: I'm not sure I have much talent, but do have a tendency to know a lot of useless statistics and knowledge about sports!
No. 1 on My Bucket List: Top two, travel to Europe, and one day attend an Olympic Games.
Favorite Sports Moment: October 9th, 2011, fellow TinCaps employee, good friend, and fellow Wisconsinite Tony DesPlaines and I were fortunate enough to attend game 1 of the NLCS for our Milwaukee Brewers against the Cardinals. We were trailing 5-2, and Ryan Braun just hit a two RBI double to make it 5-4, the very next pitch, Prince Fielder hit a two run homer to go ahead 6-5 and the Brewers went on to win 9-6. It is the single loudest moment I have ever heard a stadium of any kind, and I will remember it forever. The Brewers have won six playoff games in my life and I am fortunate to have been at three of them! Here is the Youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVnBmefqTnM
Something I Collect: We have a family coin collection that has been passed down through several generations. My dad currently has it, and I am looking forward to potentially inheriting it one day!
My Hero: My dad, he taught me about what work ethic is, but more importantly lead by example every single day putting faith and family first and being a dedicated, hard-working employee his entire career. He retired at the end of 2015 and still puts family first every single day!
