Vice President – Town Council

I grew up right here in Shipshewana, and have lived in Shipshewana all of my life. I completed my high school education at Westview High School and went on to get my bachelor’s degree from Indiana University majoring in Business Administration and Management. I married my wonderful wife, Kayla, in the summer of 2017. I currently work at the Davis Mercantile right here in Shipshewana as the building manager & head of maintenance. Some of my hobbies include white tail deer hunting and exercising at Body On Cue Health and Fitness in Middlebury.
