I entered the tree care industry in 2005 after a severe windstorm rolled through my home state of Minnesota. In 2010, I moved to Portland to climb the beautiful trees of the Pacific Northwest.
After 15 years of swinging around in trees, I’m happy to put my passion and experience to work as the newest area representative at General Tree Service.
I graduated from Portland State University with a degree in philosophy and a certification in social entrepreneurship with studies focusing in behavioral economics, systems science, social innovation, and design thinking.
When I’m not immersed in the world of arboriculture, I’m busy with music, cycling, billiards tournaments, woodworking, leather working and spending time with my wife. I also volunteer on the board of directors for Robin’s Reach, a non-profit focused on community education and effectiveness monitoring for wetland restoration projects in the Portland metro area.
