Although I grew up in rural southern Idaho, the Coeur d’Alene area has always been near and dear to me. My father grew up in Coeur d’Alene, and my family spent a large amount of time in the Panhandle with family and friends enjoying the area. After graduating from Parma High School, I was lucky to play golf for Lewis Clark State College, before ultimately graduating from the University of Idaho. I have spent the last 20+ years working in insurance as the general manager for Panhandle Insurance/Kuespert Insurance.
I have served as the Young Agent Chairman of the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of Idaho, as well as a Regional Director for IIABI, Co-Chair of the annual “Big I” Idaho Golf tournament, Regional Director for American Bass Association, been an Idaho Hunter/Bowhunter Education instructor for 22 years, Referee/Umpire for youth soccer and baseball, and currently serve as President of the Board of Directors for Avondale Golf Course. I have a strong dedication to sharing my love of the outdoors with kids, to help get them outside and grow their interests in the outdoors.
As much of my free time as possible is spent enjoying our amazing area and all that it has to offer with my lovely wife Amanda and our “four” kids Andrew (15), Abby(10), Angus(black Lab), and Pearl (incorrigible Mini Labradoodle). We play golf, hunt, fish, and ski as much as time allows.
