Chris grew up on his family farm in northeastern North Dakota near the town of Crystal. Helping out with the small grains, sugar beets, and potatoes operation gave Chris a love of agriculture and respect of the land. This carried over into college as he earned a B.S. and M.S. in natural resources management emphasizing soil science from North Dakota State University.
During Chris’ time at NDSU he became active and held leadership positions in many organizations. Some of these include, Alpha Gamma Rho Ag-fraternity, FM-Walleyes Unlimited, NDSU Ducks Unlimited, and Natural Resources Management Club. During the spring of 2008 Chris moved to Carrington to work for the NDSU Extension Service as a nutrient management specialist where he works with farmers’ and ranchers’ fertility programs and consults them on environmental issues. Chris is also active with the Carrington Pheasants Forever Chapter, Hawk’s Nest and serves of Carrington's City Council.
