I was born and raised in Iron Mountain, MI.  Iron Mountain is a small town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  It  is  located about 100 miles north of Green Bay, WI.

I am a natural born "Yooper" (a term used to describe people from the Upper Peninsula).  The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is a rural and densely wooded area. 

Growing up in the UP had an effect on my interests and hobbies.  To this day, I love hunting, fishing, hiking, and the outdoors. 

I also played a lot of sports during my childhood.  I played baseball through high school, and I'm an avid Chicago Cubs fan.  I played soccer for many years growing up, and I ran cross country and track. 

I'm still an avid runner and keep track of my best times at various distances:

5k: 18:12 (Macon Labor Day 5k, Macon, GA, September 7, 2009)

5 mile: 32:15 (Kiwanis Memorial Day Road Race, Cordele, GA, May 29, 2006)

10k: 39:15 (Enmark Savannah Bridge Run, Savannah, GA, December 6, 2008)

15k: 1:01:24 (Peachtree City Classic, Peachtree City, GA, October 21, 2006)

Half-Marathon: 1:24:13 (Auburn Half-Marathon, Auburn, AL, January 18, 2014)

Marathon: 3:00:35 (Mercedes Marathon, Birmingham, AL, February 16, 2014)
