Growing up in Big Lake, MN I had the opportunity to follow two passions of mine:sports & farming. I enjoyed my school years playing football & basketball while laboring in the local farmland. While attending the U of M Crookston I expanded my farming employment by working as a farm hand in Grand Forks. In more recent years my wife & I have enjoyed serving our local farmers & supporting our communities through the opportunities given to us by Thrivent. During our weekends we live an active lifestyle & enjoy trying new experiences. With our dogs always in close proximity we often find ourselves on a walk exploring new areas or at the lake. Family being of upmost importance to me has been highly influential to my business. I pride myself on providing support to everyone I meet to ensure they are financially confident for themselves & their families.
