I grew up on a farm in a farming family in Eastern Iowa. After high school I attended Northwestern College in Orange City, IA where I fulfilled a dream of mine of playing college baseball. I later transferred to the University of Northern Iowa where I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Finance.
My wife and I were married in June of 2005. We have four wonderful children on this earth: Abel (March 2006), Amariah (July 2007), and twins, Isabel and Elliana (May 2009). My family and I attend First Family Church in Ankeny, Iowa the community in which we live.
I am an avid sport fan (Iowa Hawkeyes and St. Louis Cardinals) and love to play basketball and golf (and volleyball is starting to grow on me).
