I GREW UP IN Akron.
COLLEGE WAS GREAT. It opened my mind to new ideas and formed me into the person I am today. It also was where I really started thinking about beer.
WHY I LIKE COMING TO WORK EVERYDAY. I get to brew the kind of beer that I really enjoy and I get to work with an amazingly talented group of people. It’s the best environment I’ve ever seen.
WHEN I’M NOT WORKING, I like spending time with Vickie, my wife and the love of my life.
MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT CLEVELAND IS the history and buildings of the city. The way we integrate that into our daily lives is always interesting, like the juxtaposition of heavy industry and natural beauty along the canal towpath trail.
