I was born and raised in Minnesota. I am an athletic person and love golf and racquetball. I am a huge fan of all 4 pro sports teams in Minnesota, especially the Twins and Vikings plus I am a big Indiana Hoosier Basketball fan. I went to Indiana University and graduated with a global studies degree. Steak with a good beer or sushi and sake are my favorite dining experiences. I am a movie buff, appreciating films of all genres and eras. I love dogs and have grown up with them my whole life. Most of all I love to travel and have visited many countries/cities around the world and experienced many new cultures. I usually take 1 big trip each year and visit another country or exotic location.
