I am an an avid outdoorsman and entrepreneur. Originally from Illinois, I moved west to attend Montana State University and soon put down roots. I am the founder of Big Sky Carvers, Warm Springs Productions (a television production company) and Missoula Brewing Company. As a Christ follower, I have served several ministries and charities, most recently I am serving as Church Champion and on the National Board of Directors for Fathers in the Field, a ministry to fatherless boys. I currently live on a farm in Manhattan with my wife Sherrie where we raised two boys, two girls, and many labrador retrievers. My wife and I were drawn to Journey about seven years ago because of the tangible Christ-centered impact it has on the Valley.
