What are your favorite off-season hobbies?

I’ve picked up some new ones. My son and I are big fans of racing those radio-controlled (RC) race cars, and on top of that, my newest hobby is being a hockey dad. I will tell you I do not like the cold at all. My feet are freezing still just thinking about it! Dunkin Donuts loves me, because I drink a lot of their coffee.

 

What do you do for work?

I work for Mad Dog Motorsports. Racing is pretty much my life. I work on race cars summer and winter.

 

What is your biggest life accomplishment?

Getting married to my beautiful wife Kristen and having a really happy family so far.
