I was born in Winona, Minnesota, and raised in So. St. Paul, and Cottage Grove, Minnesota. Even though I moved away from Winona at age three, I have spent a great deal of time there. I Even lived there for a year, from 2008-2009. I enjoy working with computers, doing genealogical research, going on road trips, watching TV shows and movies, listening to music (especially country music), and watching sports games (either in person or on TV). I have been a Minnesota sports fan for as long as I can remember.
