How you got started pulling and first hook when/where:
I always had the passion for truck pulling as a child all the way up through becoming an adult. The first hook was where it all began at the Skowhegan State Fair.
I am self employed and have been since 2006. The company’s name is Weathervane Sheet Metal and we install Standing Seam Metal Roofs. I have 2 children Kayleigh who is 11 years old and Karlee who is 6 years old. Love my kids and the fact they love to go toe the Truck Pulls. My wife’s name is Margo and we have been married for 7 years now but been together 14 years. Margo loves the Pull Truck and does anything she can to help with it, and she is a huge supporter of anything I do. I love the outdoors and all the recreational activities that go along with it. I spend a lot of my time with my dad and other family doing what we love, hunting and fishing. I am on the Volunteer Fire Department in the town of Bingham, I am the Captain of Ladders.
