Personal Information

I am married to my wife Kelly. Our daughter, son-in-law and two grandsons currently live in Willmar.

I am active in the Community, having previously served on Willmar City Council, Humane Society Board, Design Team for Vision 2040 Leadership, and City of Willmar Planning Commission. I led and assisted in the creation of Lions Dog Park. I currently work for Bennett Office Technologies as a Managed Print Specialist. I am also an Ordained Minister for Universal Life Church Ministries for the purpose of offering marriage ceremonies in Minnesota to couples who do not have a church home or want customized ceremonies.

I will seek to listen to and represent all the people of District 2 and Kandiyohi County. I believe we are all better together, stronger together, no matter where we are from, where we live, work, play or pray. Working together, we can improve the quality of life for all residents and support economic development and opportunity for all.
