I am a former secondary school teacher and football coach. I grew up in Lodi, a small town in Wisconsin, hometown of Tom Wopat and Suzie the Duck. As a youth I boxed in the Golden Gloves and once finished ninth in a Mr. Midwest bodybuilding contest. However, I was a member of a national trivia bowl championship team and was elected to the Trivia Bowl Hall of Fame. Pop culture trivia is my emphasis. It sustains and edifies me.
