I am fourth-generation North Dakotan, and grew up in District 13, West Fargo. My wife Lisa and I have been married for over 13 years, and have just been blessed with our 5th child. We are active members of Community Baptist church in Fargo and are committed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I am an Army veteran, a family man, a successful entrepreneur and employer. Professionally, I serve as CEO of Treasure Island Coins, Inc., a coin and precious metals dealer headquartered in Fargo. I am also the owner of Dakota Depository LLC, a secure precious metals storage facility in Fargo, serving clients globally.
In my previous role as operations manager, and since becoming CEO of Treasure Island in 2008, I have learned first hand how necessary it is for an organization to know who it is, what makes it successful, and to live within its means. Our company has now grown from a small coin shop with only 4 employees to a national player in the precious metals industry with nearly 30 employees, having hundreds of millions in annual sales.
North Dakotans have always been known for our strong work ethic, and common sense. And now, our State has become the envy of the nation. Our government has remained small, efficient and has allowed our people to thrive. As your representative, I will devote myself to ensuring this continues.
Let’s avoid the costly mistakes that so many other states have made, and keep moving North Dakota forward!
