When I'm not working, I enjoy backpacking, mountain climbing, and kayaking. Recently, I've also taken an interest in distance running and ran my first half-marathon in September (a painful, but enlightening experience). I'm also an avid ping-pong player. Having grown up in Lexington, Kentucky, I'm a diehard University of Kentucky basketball fan. I've lived in Washington D.C., New York, New Jersey, and South Africa. My wife Brittney and I have been married since 2009 and have a son and a daughter.
