I started my career in 1985 with American Sharecom (now Level3). At American Sharecom we sold long distance and data services only to business customers. I then went to LDDS (MCI) continuing to sell ld to business customers. My last corp employeer was Sprint Communication selling long distance and data. I found that although I enjoyed working with large business customers I wanted to be able to give them a lasting relationship that could offer more products from just one source.

I took a leap of faith and started my own small business doing just that. I started out selling ATT long distance to businesses across MN. Four years later and lots of hard work, I was able to hire my first employee. We continued to sell ld and data up to 1998 at which point US West allowed competition to sell in the 14 state Bell region. As of today we currently have 8 full time employees which bring a total of 70+ years of telecom experience to our customers. I enjoy working with our many different clients and value the lasting relationships I have made over the past 25+ years.

I started Integrated Communications in 1989 and enjoy working with all our clients on a daily basis, and being part of a positive telecom experience. I enjoy being with friends and family. I spend my time outside of the office fishing, hunting, golfing and always love good road trip! I bought an RV this past year so will be hitting the road on occasion to see our wonderful country.

My kids are wonderful… Holly is living in Madison working for a Micro Finance group that helps entrepreneur/local start-ups in smaller countries around the world. Joey is pursuing his dream in the golf course management and has come back to work at Hazeltine National Golf Club and my youngest daughter Hope is a Sophomore at the U of M working on Economics degree.
