As a native of Afton, I have a great love for this town and the people who reside within. I graduated from Star Valley High School. Married Jamie and together we have continued to live in Afton raising our two children and recently have 2 grandchildren. I have been a member of the Afton Volunteer Fire Department for 27 years. My wife and I own and operate B&H Auto Repair in Afton. As a fourth generation of this community, I feel the need to be involved while continuing to enjoy the country lifestyle that Afton has to offer.
