  • About: When I’m not visiting customers or in planning meetings with the PPR team, I enjoy spending as much time outdoors as possible. I frequently get out of town to my farm in Kansas with my German Shorthair Pointer, Berkley, or can be found fishing in Colorado or Wyoming. I have also served in a leadership role since 2015 for Flatirons Church in their Fathers in the Field ministry to assist and mentor fatherless boys
