I moved to Billings in 1974 and completed my education including college in Billings. I got my real estate license in 1993 and was awarded Billings Rookie of the Year for most sales in 1994. I earned my broker license in 2007. My wife and I purchased the Cooke City General Store in 2004 and have continued to spend our summers in the northeast corner of Yellowstone National Park. I am very involved in various community services; Cooke City Fire Chief, Cooke City Emergency Services Board Chairman, Cooke City Water Board Director, Cooke City Zoning Board Member, and the Billings Breakfast Exchange Club.
