What is your favorite part of being a team member at Strohm Ballweg?
I love the overall teamwork and camaraderie that comes from working with such great people who all have the same goals.


What do you like to do in your free time?
I have three amazing young children with my wife, Stephanie, who keep me on my toes. When I’m not chasing the kids around the house, I like to find myself on the golf course with friends or staying active by going for a short run. My other interests include following many of the Wisconsin sports teams (Packers, Badgers, Bucks, Brewers) and winding down for the day to a good sitcom, such as The Office or Big Bang Theory.
