Position:  Technology Coordinator


Phone:  701.228.2266 ext 131

Education:  Trial & Error

About:  I grew up on a farm north of Souris where I was a tractor jockey for 10 years or so.  I moved to Minot and bounced around in a few different jobs before I found I had an aptitude for technology.  After spending several years in Minot I moved to Fargo looking for greener pastures.  I bounced around in a couple of I.T. jobs and finally settled in as a Linux Admin for BCBS of ND for several years.  The opportunity to work as a computer monkey for BPS came up and the allure of moving home was too hard to resist.  In the late winter of 2010 I moved back to the farm.

My wife Sara and I have two daughters, Samantha and Kaci.  In my spare time I enjoy hunting, fishing and spending time with the family.
