Mauro lives in a 120 year old farm house on 25 acres in Monroe, Wisconsin with his wife Tracy. Together they have two wonderful daughters Rachel, and Julia. They also have a granddaughter, Leah. His hobbies include oxygen farming (planting native trees), gardening, woodworking (I'm not very good at this, but it's still fun), and collecting vintage drum sets.
