I was born and raised in Menominee, and graduated from Menominee High School. I joined the military straight out of high school which brought me to Germany as a Combat Medic with an artillery unit forwarded from Fort Hood in Texas. I also served on the All Armed Forces Ski Team which is a bright accolade from my past. After the military I moved to Spokane, Washington where I received a degree in Biology from Eastern Washington University. Staying locally in the Northwest for nearly 18 years and working for Schweitzer Mountain Resort Ski Area, I decided to open my own restaurant which was a big success. I sold it in 2010 to one of my own employees. I have a son that attends Marinette Middle School and moved back to the area in 2012 to be closer to family. I joined the Coldwell Banker team this past July with a focus on residential real estate.
