What are your favorite hobbies? Those who know me know that I am an avid outdoors enthusiast. It was instilled in me as a youth. Whether it’s on a lake, at the archery range with my daughter or in a tree before sunrise on a chilly November morning, it’s what I do…



What lead you to Haugaard Creative? I am amongst the handful of people that have been here since the doors opened way back in 1992. I worked for Phil as an apprentice at Feldkamp-Malloy, and when HCG became a reality I was given the opportunity to come aboard…


What is your favorite food? While I like many different foods...only one is banned from our home (and it’s not from dislike)… Chocolate. Chip. Cookies.

Why do you love working at Haugaard Creative? Definitely all of the talented people I’ve worked with over the years. Everybody’s skill set is a little different, but together we have always made a good team that meets the needs of our clients. All while managing to have some fun along the way… 

What were you like in high school? Very skinny. And, as a plus, I also had hair! Ahhhh, those were the days…


What inspires you? Wanting good things for my family is an obvious and 100% correct answer. But personally, what inspires me the most is the beauty of our planet and Mother Nature’s effect on it. As a side benefit of my love for the outdoors, I also wind up with some great nature photography. These images help remind me of who I am…


What is your favorite movie? Not a huge movie guy. While I’ve seen plenty. I have missed even more. I’ll go with the one I’ve probably seen the most… Caddyshack.



If you had just one box for all of your belongings, what would you put in it? Can it be one of those PODS containers? If so, we’re in business! I have a room full of gear I need to fit in there. If there is room for a computer I’ll squeeze it in to keep hold of a lifetime of family pictures and then I can still work if need be…


If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? Not sure of a specific place yet. But there will be water, mountains or both wherever it may be…
