A Montana native, I have lived in the Bozeman area since 2000. I am married with two children, but currently have an empty nest as the kids are grown and starting families of their own. Educated in the State of Montana, I hold a B.S. degree in Business Administration with Emphasis in Finance and Accounting. Having passed the CPA exam in 1991, I worked in public accounting for a couple of years, but spent most of my time working in accounting manangement for private industry.
In 2001, I established my own mortgage company, Montana Capital, in Belgrade, Montana. I owned and operated that business until 2009 at which time I went to work for Mann Mortgage in the Bozeman office. As of July 2015, I have joined the team of mortgage loan originators at Rocky Mountain Bank.
My spare time is spent in various outdoor activities as I enjoy hiking, biking, skiing and travel. My wife, Celia, accompanies me in most of these activities.
