In June of 2012, My wife, Amy, and I managed to find the place that best fit our dreams of affordable home ownership and a strong sense of community when we arrived here in Huntersville. This might be considered the culmination of an epic journey across the country for me.
I was born in Sioux Falls, SD to my parents, David and Annetta and I am their only child. My family moved to Wyoming while I was still quite young then later onto Colorado where I spent the majority of my formative years and early adulthood. I have also lived in Texas, Florida and Maryland.
I attended Columbia College and graduated with a degree in Business Administration and Computer Information Systems. I now have over 20 years of experience in the Information Technology field and, having spent the last 12 years as a consultant, I have a vast array of experience in a number of different industries such as; retail, finance, insurers, government, oil, and manufacturing. I will be able to use this experience to help businesses in our community understand what does and doesn't work to help them excel and better serve our community.
I look forward to serving the people and working to give Huntersville a better future.
