I grew up and lived in Inver Grove Heights for 53 of my 54 years and am raising my family here with my wife Kim and our sons Justin and Alex. Growing up my family was active in the Inver Grove Heights community with my parents running local businesses here in the community. My father who was active in the community and worked in the 1970's to the mid 90's to bring new residential and commercial developments to Inver Grove Heights and also served as a member of the Inver Grove Heights Planning Commission in the 1980’s and instilled in myself a sense of community involvement.
After graduating from Simley High School I attended North Dakota State University in Fargo, ND where I earned my BS degree in Industrial Engineering and Management and after that went on to earn an MBA from the University of St. Thomas.
After college I built my first home in Inver Grove Heights and have raised my family here ever since.
I have spent my career working in the engineering and facility management industry and currently work for Jones Lang LaSalle as a Senior Director of Facilities on the Thomson Reuters account in Eagan.
I believe my long association with the area and my chosen profession give me a unique insight on our local community and from where we have come from to where we can go and with this I believe with your help we can continue to make Inver Grove Heights an even greater place to work and to call home.
Inver Grove Heights has given so much to me and my family that it is important to me to be active in the community and to do what I can to make everyone that lives here feel the same about Inver Grove Heights as I do and I can’t see myself living anywhere else.
