I was born in Bend, Oregon. Raised in Tualatin, Oregon, before I left to attend Seattle Pacific University. I started dating my wife in college, whom I grew up with and went to elementary, middle, and high school with. Now, we live in Sherwood with our 2 children, Andrew and Ava.

Something about you that no one would guess
I live in Oregon, but prefer cheap light beer over Northwest Microbrews.
I enjoy being on the water in a boat. I love wakeboarding, skiing, and tubing with my family.
Anywhere with my beautiful wife (points scored), but preferably Grand Caymen.
I’ll say reading my wife’s US Weekly magazine.
