After Hours

While the Minnesota winters can be tough on the soul, nothing beats the summer in Minnesota. I take advantage of every minute of daylight by golfing at the many courses in the state, wake surfing on Big Fish lake and running along the Mississippi river. I also enjoy yoga and yearly ski trips to Colorado and Whistler.

I like reading non-fiction books, especially biographies and books that involve economics and business. For news, I start each day off by reading The Atlantic and Washington Post.
