Where did you grow up? I grew up in Kalispell, MT.
Tell us about your family. I have a daughter and son who both love reading and bad jokes, which helps keep me popular. My wife is less fond of bad jokes, but luckily thinks I’m a good cook. We are quite happy to live not too far from Summit Prep, near friends and family.
Share something about yourself that might surprise people. I am not a hobbit.
Briefly describe your work experience. My past jobs have been a wealth of life experience. I’ve worked with agencies assisting the developmentally disabled, built industrial cabinetry, managed a toy store, machined rifle barrels and worked the oilfield in North Dakota.
If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be?I would happily spend a week just on the open road. Old highways, strange radio stations and roadside cafes keep me entertained very well.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working? I enjoy hunting and camping, and just about any travel time I get with my family.
What draws you most to this type of work? I like to be around people. Here at Summit I have met some of the most creative, intelligent and funny people I have ever had the opportunity to know.
