Hometown? “I’m from Arvada, which is a suburb of Denver.” When did you come to Craig? “1977. I came here for a job with Colowyo.” Motto or outlook on life? “If I can do one thing to make somebody’s job or life easier, I’ll do it because I know that’s going to come back to me. It took me a long time to learn, but getting ahead isn’t as important as letting it come to you.” How long has your office been in its current location? “It’s maybe just a hair over a year old. Our old one burned down when the Country Mall burned down. We were working on the east side of town when they got the new one built.”
