I grew up in northern Vilas County along the border with the UP. As a child, I was always outside playing a variety of sports and spending time in the woods hunting and snowmobiling.  My whole family and wife’s family are from the Upper Peninsula, so we frequently spend free weekends back home. I graduated from UW-Stevens Point, and have over 20 years of experience practicing forestry. Helping landowners achieve their woodland goals is the most rewarding part of being a forester.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my children and coaching a variety of sports, traveling with my family, and spending time back up north with friends and family.
