Snowmobiling, dirt biking, fly-fishing
I was born and raised in the great state of Alaska. I went to college at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota and graduated with a degree in biology pre-med. I grew up playing all kinds if sports and fell in love with hockey, which helped put me through college. After college, I played a couple years of professional hockey before going to work for Wells Fargo Financial. I spent nearly seven years with the company before leaving to explore a career as a professional snowmobiler – yes, call me crazy but I left a District Manager position with a six-figure salary, full benefits, with a full retirement package to JUMP snowmobiles for a living! Ha ha
Not sure I have reached a main one yet. All decisions so far have gotten me to this point.
Life as it is now…
Life now hasn’t changed much as far as I am concerned. It takes me a little bit longer to do a few things but I am not much for excuses and am always up for a good challenge… and Lord knows this [walking in eLEGS] is up there on the list
eLEGS is a fantastic invention that allows people to get up and see the world at eye level again.
It’s food for a ‘paras’ body, mind and soul…
