My wife, Erin, and I are big foodies. Together with my daughter, Claire, we are constantly exploring new restaurants. Every trip we take seems to revolve around food, whether it be a fresh Dungeness crab in Seattle, mouthwatering turkey legs at Disneyland, or authentic Mexican food in El Paso, we are always in search of the best. On the weekends, I enjoy motorcycle trips, fishing and hunting. I also enjoy teaching my highly intelligent 3-year-old Brittany Spaniel, Chase, new tricks.
