Where are you from?

I grew up on a farm just outside Grandin, ND, graduated from Hillsboro High School and UND. I've lived all around ND during my career.

Tell us a little bit about you.

I'm a dad, sports fan, music enthusiast and a bit of a history nerd.

If there was a movie about your life, who would play you and why?

Part of me wants to say Brad Pitt or Tom Selleck, but in all reality, it probably should be Don Knotts. Just because.

What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?

I enjoy golf most of the time, music and family time.

What’s a ridiculous fact about yourself?

I once accidentally rode backwards around the show ring on the back of a hog at a 4H event.

What part of your position provides the most value?

Positive feedback from clients regarding their investment in our business. Helping businesses succeed is a great feeling.

Tell us about your experience.

My degree is in Advertising/Communications. I've spent most of my career involved with magazines, radio and online advertising sales, all focusing on agriculture. I also spent 11 years as a territory manager for farm equipment manufacturers.

What part of your job do you believe makes the most impact?

Creation of cost effective, business building advertising and communications strategies is the driver behind what it is all about.

Why does our community matter to you?

I've been fortunate to travel throughout the US during my career. I've always felt fortunate to be from this area and like to give back as I can for the opportunities and life that the community has allowed me.

What are some of your goals at Spotlight?

Given my agriculture background, I'm enthusiastic about what we can accomplish with Future Farmer Magazine. I'm also excited to work with area business owners to promote the outstanding quality, variety and opportunity that exists in our region.
