Chief Executive Officer
I enjoy leading our talented team toward permitting and constructing a 21st-century underground copper-nickel mine. Through providing a vision for the company, establishing business goals, and communicating with internal and external stakeholders, I work with our team to move our project forward. I’m passionate about developing an environmentally sound, sustainable mine that will support hundreds of families and serve as an economic cornerstone for northeast Minnesota.
I’ve had the opportunity to work for some of the best mining companies in the world for more than 35 years, with my primary focus being in underground mining. Needless to say, I love this career choice! I served on several technical review boards for mining companies and led Duluth Metals, the legacy company that started our project more than 10 years ago, prior to joining Twin Metals.
I have lived and worked all over the United States, Canada and overseas, though I was born in Minneapolis and am a fifth generation Minnesotan. Currently, I live in Minneapolis with my wife and we enjoy bicycling and walking. Spending time with our four children and five grandchildren is especially fun for us. Hunting, fishing, shotgun sports and road trips are also some activities I like to do outside of work.
Minnesota is a wonderful place to work and call home. Go Vikings!
