In May 2021, my wife, Sydney, and I embraced Monroe as our new community and hometown. I’m a Realtor at Keller Williams, and I love guiding individuals through the process. Beyond real estate, I volunteer at the Gathering Place of Monroe, love playing basketball, golf, and working out, and look forward to serving the community members of Monroe.

Our family (Marcia, Kade, Kali) have been a member of the PCM community for 30 years and have called Monroe our home town for the last 17 years. I met my wife Marcia in 1978 at a dog food factory after attending the University of Wyoming to study and play football. After losing our jobs in 1984 due the recession of the 1980’s, unable to find quality employment during the recesssion, I decided to teach myself Trigonometry to pursue a Computer Science degree from the University of Iowa. Prior to graduating from the University of Iowa, I accepted a position with a major insurance/financial company in Des Moines where I configured and managed many operating systems/storage environments over my 30 year career.

After retiring in 2019, I worked three years as a seasonal worker for the city of Monroe, during this time I wanted to understand and learn how a city is run, so I made the decision to run for the position of the Monroe city council and to support the community of Monroe.
