I have grown up around the firetruck business my whole life. I attended high school locally at Fordland high school and then went to college in western Kansas for my first 2 years of school to play baseball. I then traveled to Texas and then eventually back home to finish my senior year. I graduated with a degree in business management from Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri.

Since graduation, I have been full time helping build fire trucks to meet customer’s specific needs. My favorite part of the fire truck industry is being able to meet a customer’s specific needs to find a truck that suits their department. The fire truck industry is very unique in the fact that there are thousands of options with an apparatus, which keeps my job interesting.

In my free time, I enjoy everything outdoors. I have been very blessed to grow up in the country and still live on a farm that has been in the family for 100 plus years. The opportunity to work with my Dad and brother has been a blessing to me.
