I am a franchised automobile dealer active in issues of that industry. I am a passionate advocate for small and rural automobile dealers in South Dakota and across the country and have been blessed in that mission. I blog to comment on automotive issues and other topics of the day. I am married to my best friend and God has blessed us with two daughters, a daughter-in-law, a son, a son-in-law and a granddaughter. I enjoy mentoring young men. I love to hunt, golf, sail and bicycle. I'm a political junkie and have an interest in all things finance. Most of life is a bit better with a splash of good bourbon! I love college basketball and I am an avid fan of the Creighton Bluejays, my alma mater.
