In his spare time, Dennis can be found fishing or deer hunting at his family’s cabin up north. He enjoys reading anything investment-related or about personal development.

Dennis’s claim to fame is when he attended an event at the house of Michigan State’s basketball coach, Tom Izzo, and participated in free throw competition against 50 other people, including Coach Izzo. Although he didn’t win, he took third place, with the coach earning first place.
