Profile Updated: June 17, 2014
Residing In: Meridian, ID USA
Spouse/Partner: Laura
Occupation: Benchmark Construction, Inc., Owner
Children: Josh, born 1989, College Graduate in July
Dustin, born 1992, College Sophomore
Katelyn, born More…1996, High School Grad, College this fall.

Graduated from BYU with a BS in Manufacturing Engineering in 1986. Started my aerospace career at Rockwell International in Anaheim, California and ended it at McDonnell Douglas in Long Beach in 1990 (I could not stand working for big companies and their politics). I got back into construction and eventually worked with The Irvine Company in Newport Beach until given a severance package in 2001. It then became a race between headhunters and buying/starting are own company. We visited 15 cities in the West and decided on Boise, Idaho. I became a partner in Benchmark Construction, Inc (a design/build commercial contractor) and bought the company out in 2004.

I married Laura Davenport from Bountiful, Utah in 1988 and we have three great children. Laura and I met on a grassy knoll at a singles ward family home evening in Irvine California. For 15 years we lived in Orange County and enjoyed the beach almost every Saturday.

The best part about Idaho for me is that we had a small farm for five years until we developed it and moved into our own subdivision. It has been nice, but I prefer small farm living.

We enjoy skiing in the winter, boating and camping in the summer. We still go back to California every summer to get our beach time.

Proving my manhood at a family reunion at Lake Alturus in Idaho. Motto - if it does not feel like you have been beat with a stick on Sunday, you did not play hard enough on Saturday.
