Being a big sports fan, I visit ESPN.com at least twice a day to get the latest on college basketball, NFL, and MLB news.

I’ve become a big fan of Twin Cities-based author Vince Flynn and his political thriller novels such as Pursuit of Honor, which I finished reading over the holidays.

Your favorite website?

We recently planned a family vacation using VacationRentals.com and found an incredible house to rent near Disney World.

I really enjoy being involved in the community, and one highlight is the time I spend coaching a variety of youth sports teams. With four children actively involved in hockey, soccer, and baseball, there are opportunities for every season!
