I grew up on a small dairy farm about a mile outside of New Rockford, North Dakota. I moved to the Fargo area after high school to attend Minnesota State University Moorhead where I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting. I currently live in West Fargo (Go Packers!). I am married and have two sons, Tyler, who is 17, and Tanner, who is 14.

I was born in Thief River Falls, Minnesota, but moved to Fargo when I was 4 years old and have been a “north sider” ever since. I have two daughters: Jenna, who is 26, and Liz, who just turned 20. I am a member of First Lutheran Church, Fargo, where I most recently served as secretary/treasurer of its foundation.
