I've been married to my wife, Heidi, since 2005 and we have two boys, Miles and Mason. We have an Austrailian Shepherd named Mya and a big fat black and white cat named Macaroni.

Anything else people should know about you?
I love sports and fitness (...even though I'm not in great shape). I am an avid hockey player and have run many marathons and half marathons including the Myrtle Beach Marathon several times.
