I grew up in Rapid City, South Dakota and the majority of my family continues to reside there. Growing up in the Black Hills made me an avid outdoor enthusiast and I continue to enjoy skiing, hiking, fishing and running. After more than a decade on the West Coast, I moved to the Boston area in January of 2014 with my beautiful wife, Alexis, and two young sons, Jackson and Drake. We have enjoyed exploring the rich history and beauty of New England and are looking forward to some East Coast skiing this winter (we think).
