I graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University in 1977 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration and currently reside in Bloomington, Illinois with my wife, Diana. We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary this year. We have two children, Amy and Jenna. In 2004, Amy graduated from Butler University in Oboe Performance and went on to obtain further education.  She is a licensed massage therapist at Aches Away and is a part-time Realtor with Crowne Realty in Bloomington where she lives with her husband, Nathan, and their cat, Boots.  Jenna graduated from the University of Indianapolis in May, 2007, with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.  She began working in my office in August of 2011.  Jenna lives in Bloomington with her husband, Jeremy, and their labrador, Phoenix.

We enjoy golf as a family, both playing and spectating.  I also enjoy maintaining our lawn and landscape along with the wide variety of tropical fish in our home. In addition, I enjoy running and maintaining a level of fitness.
