Where I call home:I call Bird Island, my hometown, my home. I’ve lived in quite a few places: South Dakota, Nebraska, Willmar, Bird Island, Fargo, Dallas, and Molokai, HI. But I grew up in Bird Island and call that my home.
Family: My parents, Russ and Sharon, live in Bird Island, MN. My dad is an independent corn breeder and my mom is a special education teacher. I have a younger sister, Eliza, who is a bank teller in St. Cloud.
Hobbies: I fish quite a bit, deer hunt, work on my truck, I like motorcycles, riding horse, canoeing, kayaking, and camping. Pretty much anything outdoors.
Favorite part of my job: I’m reasonably talented with communicating with people, I’m good at collaborating with people and coming up with creative ideas to tackle a problem or situation.
