Godfrey & Kahn S.C.

What is your connection to the UW Carbone Cancer Center?
A colleague of mine suggested that I get involved in the Carbone Cancer Center after I expressed my opinion regarding legislation that was pending in the Wisconsin Legislature. It was easy to see that the ELB is a great organization made up of great people, so I stayed connected through volunteering my time at different events.

What is your favorite ELB / UWCCC event?
The Boxers and Bras event that benefitted Carbone was a pretty exotic idea that was a lot of fun.

What is something interesting about you?
I had the opportunity to do pushups at a Badger football game just like Bucky. The board that the cheerleaders hold up must be moving five feet each way as you do them. Sadly, we were up 59 – 0, but I did them all with great ease and perfect form, baby!

Where is your favorite vacation spot?
I enjoy history and have a brother in Boston, which is a great city. My wife Renee and I used to go out there every year before kids and it was a wonderful way to kick back, take in some history and relax.

Everyone has a guilty pleasure.  What is yours?
Politics…I love it but sometimes am embarrassed by the process…
