OFF THE JOB

As a husband and father of four daughters, Freeman’s family receives most of his spare time and attention. He and his wife, Stephanie, first met as preschoolers, and married after each completed their undergraduate degree in 2005. A boy that never entirely grew up, Freeman enjoys hiking, fishing, bow hunting, paintballing, chopping fire wood, and exploring old logging roads on his mountain bike. At night, he settles down by telling bedtime stories to his daughters and reading books with an adventure nexus.
