When I am not practicing law, I spend my time with my wife of 25 years and my daughter, who is now 21. Since 2007, I have become an avid long distance cyclist. I have ridden more than 40 century (100 mile) bike rides, and at least once a year, I ride on behalf of and raise contributions for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, which is devoted to finding cures and treatments for all forms of blood cancers. To date, I am proud to say that I have raised over $10,000 for LLS. This year, I am taking on a new challenge of completing a Tough Mudder, which is a 10 mile walk/run that contains about 20 obstacles that I wil have to get through. As the name of the event suggests, much of the time I will be slogging through the mud while trying to complete the event.
