Can you briefly tell us about your family? I have the middle child syndrome, with a brother and sister on either side of me. We grew up in Beloit, Wisconsin and have deep roots in Rock County.

I’m an amateur photographer and love to take pictures of the landscapes and wildlife from my front porch (or hammock).

I lived the first year in a dormitory with the students and spent three years on campus as a full-time student to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in computer science.
