Industry Government
Location Soeul, South Korea
Introduction I am proud to say I am a Wisconsinite who tries to confound and challenge people. I have lived in Naples, Italy; Hampton, Virginia; Bennettsville, South Carolina; Naperville and Chicago, Illinois; and all over Wisconsin from Madison and to Green Bay and Suamico to Maiden Rock and Plum City! I currently live in Seoul, South Korea, however I call Shell Lake, Wisconsin my home. I lean way to the right on most things, but I also believe that government should generally stay out of our lives and out of our pocketbooks and not legislate our morals. I graduated from North Central College in 1992 and then spent 9 years trying to figure out how to feel like what I was doing actually mattered. Well, I can tell you, the career I have chosen can certainly give one a sense of purpose. It has also helped me to appreciate where our country has come from and what the rest of the world expects of us. I hope to share with you some of what I have learned about why everyone else either loves us or hates us, and why we should never take where we live (and especially us in Midwesterners) for granted.
Interests When I finally return hometo Wisconsin...I hope to, spend some time with my folks, Renew my bond with the BWCA, build some houses, my Hybrid, travel by train across the country, complete my collection of the AFI top 100, model railroading, canoeing

If you were a pirate, how would you avoid laughing when saying 'poop deck'?

I don't know, I still laugh when someone says they need to use the head...
