I was born in St. Paul and lived on the West side of St. Paul until I was a young adult and have been a resident of Inver Grove Heights since that time. I graduated from Cretin High School, and went on to attend St. Paul TVI, DCTC, UMN, and graduated from IHCC.
I am a husband, father and grandfather. I have been married for 30+ years to my wife Deena. We have 3 children, 3 grandchildren, and our dog Lula.
I am the proud owner of The Deck & Door Company and The Deck Store in Apple Valley and have been self employed for my entire adult life. I incorporated my business in 1988, and it has grown into a 30 person operation with many employees from the local community.
I have always had a passion to preserve and improve our community that we live in and keep it great for those that will be here in the future. This is not a job one can do on their own, it takes the community as a whole to continue the strong growth that we have aspired for and worked hard to attain.
