Committee Assignments


I am a McKenzie County native; my family farmed here for several generations. Growing up in an agricultural community gave me the appreciation for hard work, personal integrity, and an awareness of our natural resources. My career in the energy industry provides me with the knowledge of how the energy industry works collaboratively with its community for its mutual benefit. Service and excellence have been a part of my character my whole life. Starting as a Cub Scout, all the way through Eagle, community service has been a cornerstone of my upbringing. That service continued into adulthood. Enlisting in the National Guard at age 17 while I was still in high school, my service to our nation began early. I graduated from West Point and was commissioned as an Army Officer, serving our nation until being medically discharged as a Captain. The role of State Representative is complex and time-consuming. I am not running for this position unprepared or for selfish reasons. I have taken an active part in my community and region since moving my family back home. Returning to Western North Dakota in 2011, I immediately stepped into service and leadership roles in the community, county, and in my industry. I am currently a Township Officer and the former Chairman of the County Planning and Zoning committee, giving me a working knowledge of local government. As a safety professional in the energy industry, I am a leader amongst my peers in safety, leading initiatives, and sharing best practices in the industry. Currently, I am on the Board of Directors for the North Dakota Safety Council as well as serving on the boards of two North Dakota Veterans associations. My motivation for the role of State Representative is to continue to serve District 26 as I have done in many roles during my life.
