Personal Interests

Guy is a father of two; all other personal interests are subordinate to this. When he can edge out time for himself he enjoys reading schlocky science fiction and fantasy, playing video games and board games, searching for the perfect local craft beer, nature walks, cooking, fixing up his fixer-upper home, and hanging out with his wife.
