I was born in Pocatello, Idaho, but grew up in the small town of Shelley, Idaho, which is home to the world famous Spud Day celebration. My wife Melinda and I have four children, Payton, Jackson, Luke, and Grady. We love to spend time together as a family and always look forward to our annual migration to Idaho and visiting our two favorite National Parks, Grand Teton and Yellowstone. I love the outdoors. I try my best to consume most free time with fly fishing, hunting, horseback riding, and camping, but with a busy family I do not always get my way.
