I find it a bit embarassing
to talk about oneself, but what the hell. I'm basically a lifelong
resident of Manitowoc, WI. Except for a few years spent in southern
WI and Northern IL, Manitowoc has been my home. It's a great place
to raise a family, though it can get a little cold and boring during the winter months.
My formative years were
spent mosty playing sports all summer long and at Lincoln High---Football,
Basketball and Track. I was fortunate enough to play in two state
basketball tournaments, two state track meets (State champs in 1980)
and made All-FRVC as a running back and as a guard (basketball)
for LHS. High school was a blast. An ACL injury during my senior
year quashed any hopes I had of playing past high school, though
I did run track,play lacrosse and party at Ripon
College earning a degree in Sociology and Anthropology.
Married and divorced
with two boys, I am now again married to the lovely Yumi and coaching the boys when time permits. See, with Yumi in my life
I have gained another son and two daughters. It's all good even
though at times I want to run away and never come back.
My latest hobbies are backcountry camping with Yumi and whoever I can beg to come along with me. Before that it was web design.
Before that it was guitar. Before
that it was golf. I still do those other things but I don't obsess and plan a golf game for a year like I do my trips to the mountains. I'm sick that way.
