My wife Janelle and I live just south of Malone's campus and frequently can be found taking walks in the neighborhood. In addition to my work at Malone, I do find time for a few hobbies. I enjoy running and golf, both ball golf and disc golf. I also enjoy taking on large home remodeling projects. We have a son, William.
