robynthumbRobyn, "the love of my life” and I have been married since April 2003.  After we met in 2001 my birthday gift from her was my first skydiving class.  Although she has  done 3 tandem skydives, she prefers to watch the jumpers from the comfort of her lawn chair on the ground.  I’m guessing that she reads a couple dozen books each season at the drop zone while waiting for me to land.  In real life she works in finance for Gensler, an architecture and interior design firm in Chicago.


taylorathumbTaylor is my 18 year old, soon to be college freshman, daughter.  She’s off to the University of Northern Colorado in the fall to study journalism and psychology.  She’s one of the managing editors for “The Elk Grove Guardian” and you can read her latest article.  She is a self-confessed Harry Potter nerd – a passion she compares to the Star Wars mania of my teenage years.

andrew1thumbAndrew my son, loves video games as is the case with many 15 year-old boys,.  He lives with him mom in a small town in upstate New York where they get lots of snow in the winter. He also likes to skateboarding, watch baseball and he loves dogs.  Lucky for him he has two dogs in New York (Misty and Bugsy) and one in Illinois (Spike).


spike1thumbSpike (a.k.a., Stinky) is a bagel, which is a mix of a beagle and a basset hound.  He joined our family in August of 2005 and promptly stole our hearts (and the warm spot on the couch).  His interests include walking around the neighborhood with Robyn, wrestling on the living room floor with me and just generally being adored.  Robyn is certain that he would win “Best in Show” if the Westminster Dog competitions had a napping category.
