I grew up in Michigan and learned to love trees and the outdoors through my dad and his small woodlot.  I earned a forestry degree at Michigan State University. Helping landowners achieve their forest objectives is the most rewarding part of being a forester.

What I like about Washburn County: I enjoy the wildness and the large tracts of forest land that can be found in Washburn County.  I appreciate the beautiful lakes and rivers and all the recreational opportunities Washburn County has to offer.  And I enjoy working with everyone who lives and vacations in this area.
