I grew up in Southern MN, am married, and have 2 children. I am a graduate of St. Olaf College and attended the University of Minnesota Law School and Carlson School of Business. After spending 30 years in the insurance industry, the last 7 as Vice President and COO, my family and I retired to our lake home in Hayward, WI. Finding a need to stay active in business, I obtained my real estate sales/broker's license and joined Area North Realty in 2000. As a Realtor with one of the largest and busiest real estate companies in NW Wisconsin, I still find time to enjoy the beautiful Hayward Lakes area fishing, skiing, and playing golf.
I'm a hometown guy that's lived and worked in the area my entire life. Starting in construction back in the late 80's early 90's, I spent almost 20 years in the residential and light commercial building fields. Being blessed with a great wife and 3 wonderful kids, I feel this is a spectacular area to rise a family. On my free time, I enjoy the excellent trail systems for both cross country skiing, biking, the fishing and hunting as well. I invite anyone to visit and warn them once you come, you'll want to stay.

I started my life's journey in Southern Minnesota as well as Northern Wisconsin. While living in Minnesota, I received my BS degree in Communication Studies and Business Administration from Minnesota State University Mankato. Attending school has given me extensive knowledge on how to communicate effectively in a constantly changing society.
