Height:  6'1 Weight:  Too many lbs. Alumni Status:  B.A., Gov't & Intl. Studies, 1986; Stanford Hall
Location:  Le Roy, NY Favorite Baseball Team:  New York Yankees
Natural Enemies:  Various and sundry.

Athletic Ability: I had more of it when I was younger than I do now, not that that sets the bar terribly high.

Sartorial Style: My wife buys my clothes. Trust me, that's a good thing.

Favorite Beverage and Consumption Freq: Vanilla Coke Zero, probably more of it than is healthy.

Political Philosophy: FDR/RFK Democrat. In local elections, however, I vote for the best candidate. Party identity and philosophy becomes much more important at the state and national level.

Religious Philosophy: Cafeteria-style, semi-lapsed Catholic. I have significant differences of opinion with the Catholic Church which likely will never go away completely and which prohibit me from embracing the faith in the manner I did when I was younger. At the same time, however, I have no reason to believe that there is any other religion out there which is a better fit for me, and I know for a fact there are a number of other religions which are a much worse fit for me. Now that I have become a parent, I have made more of an effort to reconnect with the faith for the sake of my children.

Musical Favorites: Yes, Genesis, Rush, Van Halen, and most of what you'll find on your local classic rock radio station. My knowledge of popular music ended around 1993 or so, except for the modern crap my kids expose me to now.

Favorite Quote from an ND Coach:

Miscellaneous Data: I am probably the only Notre Dame alumnus who has ever resided in the town where I currently reside.
