I am a Colorado native, living all my life in Black Forest. My Dad had a construction company, building custom homes. Right out of high school, I started working for him full time. I have over 40 years of experience in all phases of residential construction, especially framing and trim - anything to do with wood, and have done a little bit of almost everything else.
I enjoy any time spent working with my hands. I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors, enjoying God's amazing creation. I can find lots of reasons to be in the outdoors - hunting, camping, hiking and fishing are some of my favorite reasons. There just doesn't seem to be enough days to enjoy being in the mountains! My family also enjoys the outdoors, so we get to do many of these activities together.
I spent a little over 20 years coaching wrestling at the high school level. That has been one of the most rewarding things God has allowed me to do. The young men and their families that I have had the privilege to work with have been a huge blessing to my life.
I met my wife at a Bible camp, and we have been married since 1977. God has blessed us with two daughters.
