What are your favorite off-season hobbies?
Catching up on everything that I put off during the racing season – mostly home improvements. Right now I’m finishing the flooring that I started last spring.
What do you do for work?
I’m an electrician at the University of Vermont Medical Center. I’ve been employed there since 2006; I’ve been an electrician since I started as an apprentice in 1993.
What is your biggest life accomplishment?
That’s an easy one – my kids. My daughter is into sports, and my son James is now out of high school and learning careers. (Laughs)
