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 have a few hobbies. I enjoy running, disc golf, and sailing local lakes. I also enjoy large home remodeling projects. We have a son, William and twin daughters, Claire and Victoria.
