What job would you have if you listened to your 6 year old self?

Soft, without a doubt!

When you aren't working what are you doing?

Life is never boring! Normally chasing/playing around with one of our three boys...all under the age of seven! Outside of that, I love hunting, fishing and camping in Minnesota and cheering on the local pro sports teams!
