Family: Wife Tara; daughter Emily; son Aidan,
Hobbies: Golfing (it’s not just a sport…it’s a way of life!), playing pool, darts, singing in my church choir, reading, and playing the organ (my childhood dream was to play the one at the Organ Grinder on 82nd or the one at Oaks Park Roller Rink…never did)
Favorite Foods: Filet Mignon, Pizza, Hazelnut Crusted Halibut, and Turkey with all the trimmings, and ice cream (maybe these explain my cholesterol issues)

Something I love that I lost: My dad, in 2005. He became a father at 57 and lived to 94. He swore he’d be the only guy collecting social security with a kid in kindergarten.
Things people would be surprised to know about me: I’m scared to death of getting a speeding ticket…don’t know why, just am…have never even had a parking ticket. I’m usually very quiet at home and at family gatherings. Also have a thing for numbers…I easily remember phone numbers, family and friends birthdays/anniversaries, and license plates of every car my parents or I have ever had.
Physical fitness routine: Who has time? I jump to conclusions and bend over backwards for people on a daily basis!

SEATTLE - A man who helps his wife with housework does not have more sex than a man who sticks to "manly" chores, a new study found.
"Media interest in the debate has crystallized around claims that men who participate in housework get more sex," the authors of the study in the February 2013 edition of The American Sociological Review write.
Not so, according to researchers at the University of Washington.
A new study "found that married couples who report having the most sex are those in which men do a greater share of 'typically male' tasks and women do a greater share of 'typically female' tasks.
"Results show that both husbands and wives in couples with more traditional housework arrangements report higher sexual frequency, suggesting the importance of gender display rather than marital exchange for sex between heterosexual married partners," the study authors wrote.
The researchers argue "this is because in marriages, spouses perceive their partners as very feminine or very masculine when they do gender-typical housework. Over time, greater perceptions of masculinity or femininity lead to more attraction and thus more sex."
