A graduate of Miami University and the University of Missouri, Columbia School of Law, Corey’s favorite teams are both “MU” -- the Redhawks and Tigers, respectively. A rabid Cardinals fan, Corey can frequently be found arguing with complete strangers over late-inning pitching match-ups and managerial strategy. As a general proposition, Corey has an affinity for any activity that allows him to spend time in the great outdoors – preferably with his wife, four children, and their Aussie Sheppard. Disinterested by weekend 5k’s and occasional mud runs, Corey often participates in events others would (correctly) characterize as completely stupid and utterly pointless, such as GORUCK Challenges and similarly excruciating endurance events.
