How do you spend your free time?
When weather permits, enjoying outdoor activities such as bike riding, kayaking, and playing golf or tennis. When it doesn’t, working out and playing tennis indoors.
What is the first concert you went to?
Elton John at Northern Illinois University.
What is your favorite month of the year and why?
July, because it represents all things summer, which is my favorite season. Also, my children were both born in July, so the month is full of celebration!
