A small disclaimer before we start…writing a personal bio is HARD and cheating off your wife’s superior bio doesn’t seem like the example I want to set for any future Oho. So, please give me a little grace.
In short, if I had to summarize myself in only three words, they would be dedicated, easy going and fun-loving. Not enough? Well then, I guess we will have to do this the hard way.
In long, each of those words describes a core value in my life that I one day hope to pass along to the next generation of Oho.
Dedicated. When I say I’m dedicated, it means I’m completely and totally committed to my God, my Melissa, my friends, and my family. I don’t love all of them equally, right now God and Melissa take spots one and two, but the the rest follow pretty closely. I would do anything for the people I love.
Easy Going. Like writing a bio, life is hard! I’ve found that worrying about the little things in life just isn’t worth it, so I try not to let them get to me.
Fun-loving. I work hard. It’s a characteristic that my parents instilled in me since I was little. I would have listed it as one of the big three, but who wants to describe themselves as hard working over fun loving? However, because I work hard, I want to have just as much fun in and out of the office. I laugh just as much at work, as I do at home and I want everyone to share in that laughter regardless of where I am or who I’m with.
Other fun facts:
- I have a degree in law. It’s actually what brought us to Minnesota.
- I may or may not be a complete geek when it comes to super heroes, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Star Trek.
- I have a love/hate relationship with home projects and all things carpentry.
- One day I hope to dedicate my career to pro bono cases, full time.
