In 1989 he accepted a sales position with Artco Promotional Products and had no idea it would lead to a lifetime career in the Promotional Products Industry. He has been involved over the years with many local organizations raising money for the Vision 2000 project, volunteering with Big Brother Big Sister, working on the Fargo Airsho Committee for over 20 years and chairing the Military Affairs Committee with the Fargo Chamber.

They spend most summer weekends at the family lake cabin on Big McDonald lake near Vergas, MN.
