More Info

  • I am a Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) certified football official. I am my crew's line judge, and we've had a couple great season, officiating state playoff games two years in a row.
  • I have been homebrewing with good friends since 2005 because we figured if we couldn’t get high-quality microbrews, then we’d make them ourselves. Now I have been planted in one of the liveliest beer cultures in the United States: Wisconsin. I work a few days a week at the Wine & Hop Shop, Madison's best homebrew shop; and I have also helped Page McCormick craft his fine brews at House of Brews. Brew on!
