I am a native of Delta County having been born in Paonia and raised in Crawford and Delta. I graduated from Delta High School and what is now Colorado Mesa University with an Associate in Business when it was a junior college with an Associate in Business degree. My wife Cheryle and I raised our family in Delta County.

I have been self employed as a Professional Surveyor primarily in Western Colorado for the past 30 years. I have had the opportunity to serve many clients on many different types of projects from coal mining to land development to the location of site improvements. My goal has been to provide my clients with a quality product at a fair price.

I enjoy music having been part of a country band for the past several years. I love to follow my grandson's activities in sports and 4H. I enjoy the outdoors.
