What do you love most about your job? ​Working with the other members of the team to build and complete projects

What was your very first job?  Working for my dad at Dakota Salvage Pool and Pawn.  When I was younger, I used to raise and sell pumpkins in the neighborhood.

Where is your favorite place you have traveled to?   Ireland 

What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend? May through August you will find me at our lake cabin enjoying lake things.  During the winter months, I enjoy football, MMA fighting, family time with movies and games, working on houses, and hanging out with my wife, Kirsten along with our two daughters Sam & Sarah and their significant others.

What 3 words would your friends use to describe you? Honest, ethical, loyal.

Mountain Dew and Plain M&M’s.

What are 3 things still left on your bucket list? …..

Tell us about your career before EPIC?  I went to NDSCS for my associate’s degree in collision repair. I started my career working for Body Shop by Fritz for a few years.  I was then approached to open an auto body supply store in St. Cloud, Minnesota in 1994. My wife and I moved there for about a year, but with the rental houses we owned in Fargo we knew that this was our forever home. We moved back to Fargo and I opened West Fargo Auto Body and Glass – owned and operated that until I sold it. My next venture was joining Todd and the EPIC team.  Throughout my adult life, I have flipped real estate for many years and also work as a realtor under Trilogy.  I started in the development world and it just seems that I can’t get enough of doing this type of work. 

What trend do you hope makes a comeback? Bandanas

What is your most hated household chore? ​Shoveling the sidewalk

If you could only have 3 apps on your smartphone, what would you pick?
