I love sharing my experiences with others by speaking at meetups and conferences. I have long enjoyed speaking at work, but in late 2015 I built the courage to speak outside of work, and I haven't looked back.
As much as I love development, I love the outdoors even more. I am outside almost the entire time from April to November. If I didn't live in Wisconsin, I would be outside all of the other months too.
Summers are spent swimming or camping with my wife and kids, training for and racing triathlons, and trail running. Winters are spent waiting for the right conditions to sled, snowboard, or cross country ski, and climbing indoors.
