I was born July 1, 1975 and grew up three miles south of Bayard on my family's farm. After graduating from CRB in 1994, I attended the University of Iowa graduating in May of 1999 with a Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering.
I worked from September 1999 to August 2011 with Calhoun-Burns and Associates in West Des Moines where I did bridge inspection and rating, bridge design, construction management and rural/urban roadway design.
Since June of 2004 I have been a Licensed Professional Engineer.

I started working at Community Insurance in August of 2011 and am licensed in personal, commercial and crop. I also still farm and raise cattle with my dad.
