Personal Information

Met partner Stephanie Andersen in high school. Lists 1994 Mazda Miata as daily driver, pulled pork sandwiches as his favorite food, Sherlock as his favorite TV show, carpentry apprentice with my father as his first job, David Hobbs, Rusty Wallace, P.D. Cunningham, and Jason Saini as his racing heroes, and Road America as his favorite track. "My father and I started a small parts business (ISellMiataParts.com) to gain spares for our Spec Miata racing which has now flourished into a significant venture. We rescued a pitbull from the harsh Wisconsin winter and he's become a mascot for our business.  George is named for my grandfather who was an Oldsmobile mechanic for forty (40) years in Racine. My partner, Stephanie, and I met in high school.  Spec Miata racing and Mazda have been a significant part our relationship these past several decades. I was named after Alec Baldwin's character, Blake, of GlenGarry Glen Ross. I hope to one day write a horror screen play where at the end we find out they were just delusions caused by a gas leak."
