What are your favorite hobbies in the off-season?

I like snowmobiling in the winter time and I do a little bit of ice fishing.  It’s an off-season for work for me too so I’m available to do quite a bit of things in the winter, which is nice because I like working on my racecar too.  I only ice fish a few times a year, and I’ve been Snowmobiling for 6-7 years now. 

 

What do you do for work?

I install fences for my father at A.H. Fence.   I’ve been there 11 years now. 

 

What is your biggest life accomplishment?

I would say getting married and buying a house.  We’re working on starting a family, I don’t have kids yet, but I got married last year.  I purchased a house two years ago.  I think those are pretty big accomplishments, at least to me.
