BIOGRAPHY

My trek to sitting in Meridian, Idaho started in a small Alaskan village in 1971. Well ... not actually a village, but it sounds better than a city. Anyways, after breaking many hearts and moving to Texas when I was 14, I eventually split up a relationship and married my wife of almost 25 years.

Two kids, 8 dogs, two minivans, and a Honda Civic later, we are almost being empty nesters with half of our money going to University of Washington and the other half going to Univeristy of Arizona.

Little known fact - in addition to being a professional salesperson of things people often throw away, I have also been a professional golfer and professional hockey referee. Not wanting the fame, money, and notoriety that comes along with winning tournaments and standing on the ice in front of 20,000 people, I chose to get my own office in Meridian, Idaho.
