I am a lifelong resident of the Columbia River Gorge and continue to call this area my home and have my office in The Dalles, OR. I love the Communities I live and work in as they are filled with incredible scenery and wonderful people. I am truly blessed to call the Gorge home!

After playing baseball in the Northern Pac -10, I had a 20 year career at UPS and now have my own State Farm Agency. My wife Michelle has been able to join me in the Agency and my son Jake, yes - Jake from State Farm, now lives on a farm and raises specialty show sheep while my Daughter, Maddie, recently graduated from Dufur High School and was elected as a State Officer for FFA. I have been truly blessed with family and friends.

I love being able to help people and that is exactly what being a State Farm Agent allows me to do. It doesn't matter if you are a customer or not, helping people comes first. I work very hard a being a "Good Neighbor" and do everything I can to give back to the Communities I live and work in.

I was honored to be selected as Outstanding Philanthropist in 2018 at the Tradition of Compassion Community Awards. I am a proud Rotarian and recently retired from coaching baseball for 31 years. I continue to enjoy providing free pitching lessons to all ages. The annual County Fairs are a special time of year and I love supporting our Local Youth with their agricultural projects. I very much enjoy supporting our local Communities.
