My major interests outside of work are my family including three children a son-in-law and a large, friendly, not very bright yellow labrador retriever, not necessarily in that order. My children are bright, but not always so friendly.
I am a runner, although not a very fast one, but I benefit from a dwindling number of competitors in my age group on the theory that if I can't get faster, at least I can get older.
I enjoy traveling and was honored to lead a group of family law professionals to South Africa in the fall of 2009 and plan to lead another group in the fall of 2010 to Vietnam and Cambodia. Finally, for 11 weekends every fall (12 if they make a bowl game), I am intensly concerned that the Wisconsin Badgers do not fall back on the old habits from the days I went to school there - all wins are welcome.
