I was born and raised in central South Dakota. I grew up with a strong passion for hunting, fishing, and basketball. My parent's taught me a very strong work ethic at a young age running heavy equipment for my families construction company. I then went on to coach college basketball at Concordia University-St Paul and Si Tanka/Huron University. I have been blessed with four children; Reece, Sutton, Peyton and Kingsley. I am excited to have a career where I can share my passion with others.
