What would be your first question after waking up from being cryogenically frozen for 100 years? Did the Minnesota Vikings finally win a Super Bowl?
Who has impressed you most with what they’ve accomplished? My wife. She has helped me raise our four children while putting up with me all while having a successful career as an Attorney.
What would be your ideal way to spend the weekend? Playing a round of golf each day with family and friends. Having a great meal and finishing the night out in the backyard with a fire and good conversation.
Why did you decide to do the work you are doing now? I decided to become a Civil Engineer and work in the water industry, because I grew up with my Dad being a Utility Superintendent for a small town and I found the small water plant he worked in to be very interesting.
What’s your secret talent? I actually am an amazing cook and really love it as well. I frequently enjoy cooking multi course meals for my family and friends.
