I grew up in the Twin Cities. Out of High school I served 6 years in the US Army Infantry with the 101st Airborne Division and then with the US Army’s Elite Berlin Brigade in Berlin Germany. Upon my Honorable discharge from the Army I returned home to Minnesota and moved to Shakopee. It was in Shakopee that I met and married my wife Carrie. It was our dream to raise our children Victoria “Tori” and Erik in a nice lake community that had a small town feel. And in 2002 we fulfilled our dream and moved to Prior Lake.

For the last 23 years I have worked in customer care and sales in the Printing industry. Currently I am with D & G Packaging in Burnsville, a company that provides printing companies with packaging and bindery services.

For over 23 years now Prior Lake, Shakopee and Chaska have been our place to live, work, and play. My wife Carrie is a Chiropractor (29 yrs.) and her office is in downtown Chaska. We also own a small commercial property management company. My commitment to service has revolved around these three communities.

My hobbies include; working out, (not too successfully) Playing golf, Sporting clay shooting, boating, and shuffling kids to school and sports activities.
