Biography: I am originally from the Mankato, MN area and grew up in a river valley. This is where my love of the outdoors started and continues to be my passion outside of work. I enjoy camping, canoeing, fishing, hiking, yard work, grilling, and riding ATVs. My wife and I keep busy with three children, two cats, and one dog.
