What do you do for South Dakota Safety Council?

Motorcycle Program Director

Name one really interesting thing about yourself.

I once brought my sons (17 and 19) on a cross country motorcycle tour to New Hampshire to attend a timber framing class.

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be and why?

So many places…I’d love to see Stelvio pass in Italy, and I’d like to ride every Backcountry Discovery Route before I die. I love to travel to places I have not seen and I’m a sucker for gravel roads and mountains.

What are your hobbies?

Family, motorcycles, being outdoors, hanging with my Border Collie bestie River.

What is your favorite food?

Porter House, medium rare over a campfire.

What song would you sing on karaoke night?

If I had the requisite singing skills; Silver Bell by Gregory Allan Isakov.

What is your all-time favorite movie?

Lonesome Dove.
