I’m currently based here in Two Harbors and manage all aspects of the LaBounty manufacturing site. I previously managed locations in Portland, Jiashan, China, and Dusseldorf, Germany before closing both the international locations in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
I’ve been married to my wife Karen for almost 20 years and we have 3 kids: Paige (Senior), Erica (Sophomore), and Alex (7th Grade). I love spending time outdoors as a wanna-be rancher/farmer and you can often find me wasting time wrecking trees with my skid steer.
I golf (not very well) but I like to play and it’s a good reason to get out of work at least once a week for men’s league or Chamber events.
During high school, I did what every kid dreamed of doing in the ‘80s: I was in a band! Yes, I had long hair (super mullet) and all. We thought we were cool and hard rock. However, one of my current employees pretty much nailed it when he saw our album cover and heard one of our original songs. He said we were probably more like a bad mix of Def Leppard and A Flock of Seagulls. But it was the ‘80s and it was fun.
I turn 50 this year and still have a full head of hair…at least until we earn enough to shave it all off!
