I grew up in Columbia Falls just north of here then attended Montana State University for an undergraduate degree in nursing (sorry Griz fans).
After getting married in 1989, my wife and I moved to Portland, Oregon, where I attended dental school at Oregon Health Sciences University. We were so excited to return to beautiful northwest Montana.
We enjoy everything about living here, the small town, the outdoors and great schools for our children to grow up in. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. We have five children and three grandchildren and are thankful for our life!
My wife and I love to go on mission trips to provide dental care to those who do not have access to the care we have in the United States.
I enjoy fishing, hunting, taking photographs and bicycling, and I also enjoy carving and painting fish if I cannot go catch them.
