I was raised on a ranch south of GT Falls between Ulm and Cascade and graduated from Cascade High School and attended MT State University. I grew up in the family business which included a slaughter house and wholesale meat distribution company in addition to the ranch. For 13 years I owned an insurance agency and was contracted to Mountain West Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company based in Laramie, WY. I was a sports broadcaster for several years before becoming the Ag Director for KMON. I also ref High School football with the Gt Falls refing pool. I am a big believer in 4-H and FFA and a strong advocate for agriculture.
