Outside of his career, Young enjoys living a full life. He enjoys spending time with his two teenage children and helping them learn his passion for golf.

When he is not on the hunt for the best restaurant he is trying out a new recipe or improving on an old one like his Vietnamese pho. He has travelled the world including France, Italy, Croatia, French Polynesia, British Virgin Islands, Bahamas, and Mexico. He hopes to continue his quest to see more of the world over time especially Vietnam. He enjoys concerts/comedy shows whether they be small or big.

One of his favorites was the Weeknd Concert and his annual daddy/daughter date to the Nutcracker by the Pacific Northwest Ballet each Christmas. His newest hobby is paddleboarding in one of the local lakes. Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish are his favorites.

When time allows he enjoys one of the longest bike trails nearby, Centennial Trail in Snohomish County and hopes to complete the 30 mile trail one day soon. You will find him also at the movies quite often. With the dark cold winters it is a great escape for him and his children.
