I belong to a family that is full of artists, musicians, actors, writers, and other types of creators, so the importance placed on the arts has always been an significant part of my life. Having kids of my own, I have tried to pass on this appreciation for the arts. My wife and I took my oldest son to Pioneer Theatre Company's presentation of Newsies, and it was fantastic to be able to see him experience the joy of the stage for the first time. I look forward to many more of these types of experiences.
