He also assists with his auction skills as a Commercial Liquidator in Indianapolis and he’s a real estate agent with RE/MAX Advanced Realty office in Plainfield, Indiana.

He also enjoys riding his Harley, boating, spending time with his family and helping farmers out from time to time. At the end of the day everything ties back to his childhood roots of family, farming and the auction business.
