I grew up in Carrington, ND and graduated from Carrington High School in 1999. I went on to attend the University of North Dakota, and graduated with a degree in Communications in 2003. I started my career in the lumber business in 2008 when I moved back to Carrington and began working at Central City Lumber as Assistant Manager. I am married to my wife Krystle, we have three daughters (Aubrey, Mya, & Averie). In my free time I like to golf any chance I can, and spend time with family.
