What do you love about living in the Tri-State?:
I was a diehard fan of the Big Red Machine, so I love watching a game at the ballpark. The city has so much to offer; a lively downtown, nice riverfront, great neighborhoods and suburbs, and friendly people. There beautiful views from many parts of the metro area. I was born and raised in Kentucky. Most of our family lives within a one hour drive of Cincinnati, so it feels like home. I love it here.

What are your favorite local hangouts/places, sports & cultural institutions?:
I love sports, so you might see me in the crowd at a game rooting for the Reds or Bengals. Mount Adams has a great view of the city, so I enjoy spending time there. I like Eden Park, too. We enjoy discovering locally-owned businesses, especially places that serve great food without breaking my bank! If the weather is nice, my wife and I love to eat outside on a sidewalk table at some of our favorite restaurants in the Cincinnati area.

60 Minutes, Law and Order, Cosby Show, Twilight Zone, Seinfeld
