I was raised in Northern Utah, graduated from Bear River High, earned an associates degree at BYU-Idaho and completed a bachelors at the University of Utah in 2003.

Since then I have worked for a number of newspapers and received several awards.

I am the author of “No Excuses, No Regrets: The Eric Weddle Story.”

I served an LDS mission to Santiago, Chile, and spent a year teaching seminary for the LDS Church. Like my father before me, I am a proud Eagle Scout.

My wife Lisa and I have four children and live in Utah.
