PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

I have held senior management positions in large mining and manufacturing corporations in the extractive industries (metals, minerals and energy).  I have substantial experience in Operations Management, Budget Preparation, Human Resources & Labor Relations, plus several years as a Consultant to small businesses.

PERSONAL

Married 46 years Both Carol and I are natives of Central Illinois and have known each other since high school. We have three children, all grown with families (two families are Colorado residents). We enjoy our eight grandchildren and are especially happy that five of them live nearby in the Denver area.

After traveling and working in most of the United States, Carol and I chose the Pine Junction area to spend our retirement. This is the fourth time we have lived in Colorado and loved it so much, after our first move here in 1971 that we knew we wanted to return someday.  It is a special place for us and we care about its future.  We have been residents of Pine Junction since moving here from Arizona in July 2003.

We are both lifelong Republicans and enjoy hiking, fly fishing - and showing our dog, Paddington.

I am currently serving as the president of our Homeowners Association and I am an Elder in our church.
