I graduated from the University of Cincinnati and was a Delta Tau Delta Fraternity member and served four years in the U.S. Navy. I lived in Japan for four years, and served on board the USS Independence (CV-62). I have backpacked throughout Asia numerous times, climbed Mt. Fuji, and have completed two marathons (2017 and 2020). I worked at a little convenient store for six years in high school and college and in the packaged ice industry for 18 years after the Navy. I was an operations manager serving in the aviation industry for 7 years. In 2012, I rode my bicycle from Carmel, Indiana to Orlando, Florida for charity. I have written four books: Go The Distance (2011), 2000 Miles On Wisdom (2014), Next In Line Please (2016), and The True Facts Trivia Game: For Fans of Fox News (2021). I am a proud father of a seventeen year old and married to the love of my life.
