A Bit About Me

What I enjoy most about working for Bell Insurance is how knowledgeable, professional and helpful my co-workers are. As a former teacher, I'm passionate about teaching insurance concepts and coverage,  while working on commercial and personal insurance lines. Working as a banker and insurance agent for 46 years, I have counseled young agents that empathy is one of an agent's greatest traits.I love helping people, and if a client has a problem, I make it my problem and then do my best to solve it.

Growing up in Kindred, N.D., I earned a bachelor's degree from North Dakota State University and later became a Certified Insurance Counselor. Over the years, I've been honored to be named North Dakota Professional Agent's Association Agent of the Year, a statewide membership chairman of the association and a North Dakota board member for the State Association of Professional Insurance Agents.

My wife, Mary, and I live on Leaf Lake (south of Lake Park, Minn.). We have been married more than 50 years and have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. Outside of work, I'm a dedicated elk hunter and Canadian walleye fisherman. I also enjoy singing as a church gospel soloist, choir member, small group singer and karaoke performer.
