His biggest accomplishments include gaining an exclusive interview with Michael Jordan when he was playing minor-league baseball and for an interview with Charles Duke, who walked on the moon as part of the Apollo 16 crew in 1972.

He is single and currently resides Collinsville with his twin brother Colin. He is an avid fan of the three St. Louis sports teams (Cardinals, Blues, STLFC); Missouri, Illinois and Eastern Illinois in college sports; the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League; the Geelong Cats and Carlton Blues of the Australian Football League (Australian Rules football); the South Sydney Rabbitohs of the National Rugby League in Australia; and the US Men's and Women's national soccer teams.

In his spare time, he volunteers for St. Louis community radio station KDHX-FM and is an active member of the Ethical Society of St. Louis. He also is a fan of classic movies (three of his all-time favorite films are early MGM silent films) and of the television quiz show Jeopardy! and has auditioned twice for the show; he describes himself as a "future Jeopardy! champion."
