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."
