Growing up on a dairy farm in Central Minnesota I learned the important life skills of hard work, integrity and honesty at an early age. My wife, Mary, is also from Central Minnesota and together we value a life filled with family, faith and friends. We currently live in Edina with our two kids, Troy and Camille. Our family stays active throughout each season in Minnesota. During the summer, we enjoy golf and spending time at our cabin in Northeastern Minnesota. During the winter, we spend time downhill skiing, skating on our backyard rink, and can often be found at dance competitions and wrestling tournaments.
