I have been a Bengals fan since 1972. I am a Bengals season ticket holder, was awarded The Cincinnati Enquirer’s Bengal fan of the week in 2007 for my Bengals-Elvis costume and theatrics, religiously and optimistically attend training camp every year, and am raising my kids to be Bengals fans (sometimes against my wife’s objections and my better judgment).

In my spare time, when not obsessing about the Bengals, I spend a lot of time at my kids' games, on airplanes and work as an executive at an unnamed Fortune 500 company.
