I grew up in a small North Dakota community. At an early age, we learned how to be a productive member of the workforce. Hard work, a great family and good friends make for a strong community and a good life. These early experiences were the foundation for my future careers and activities.

I spent 15 years working for Mack Truck dealers. This experience showed me what the trucking public needs to be successful in the transportation business and the challenges they face on a daily basis.

My second career was as a small business owner. We owned and operated a retail hardware and equipment rental store for 16 years. I also am a licensed Insurance Agent and a Certified Legal Videographer. I have always enjoyed working with people and all of my past occupations involved working with a variety of people.

I have served on the Park Rapids City Council (seven years) plus many area organizations to which I have contributed time and leadership.

My wife Nancy and I have two adult daughters. We have enjoyed living and working in Park Rapids for the past 29 years.

I work hard to represent the values and needs of our district in St. Paul. Representing our part of the state is an honor I do not take for granted.
