Thanks for visiting my page. Please consider helping me support Habitat for Humanity and gain entry into this exciting crossing of the great Straits of Mackinac. I have been swimming my whole life and enjoy every second. Since I was a small boy, I have reveled in the glorious pain and achievement of the art of swimming. I feel free, joyous and proud when I swim, and now am on the eve of the challenge of the straits. Please consider supporting my quest to barf on the beach of the opposite peninsula I swam from.
As mentioned, I have been swimming my whole life and have competed in the sports of swimming and water polo for many decades. I have been fortunate to be afforded the abilities to have been considered worthy of being inducted into the Greater Lansing Sports Hall of Fame and represent Lansing Eastern High School on the wall there too. I swam collegiately and Co-Captained the swimming team at Michigan State University. I have been named All American First Team in both Swimming and Water Polo and continue to compete as a Masters swimmer and with 616 Water Polo.
I married my wife Claire 20 years ago and we have three wonderful children Finn, Lola and Eli. They all support me on a daily basis and tolerate my madness. I have been making beer now for 20 years and am VP of Brewing Operations at the great Founders Brewing Company where I get to make beer every day with my best friends. Thanks for your support!
