I graduated from Wahpeton High School in 1995. I attended North Dakota State College and graduated with a degree in Architectural drafting and estimating in 1997. I was a draftsman for a Construction company in Alexandria for about a year and then went on the road building hotels as a job site superintendent until 2001. I then worked for ABC millwork/ Lyman lumber in contractor sales until 2009. Then moved to Fargo where I worked for Dakota Fastening/Acme tools in sales until 2019. I currently am a Territory manager for Building Products Incorporated. I am married to by beautiful wife Joni and we have two girls, Norah 8 and Grace 12. In my spare time, I love spending time with family and friends. I also like to golf, pheasant hunt, go camping and spend time at the lake.
