He grew up on the family farm in Dow, Ill., graduated from Penn State, received his law degree from George Washington University, practiced law for one year, started making custom furniture and eventually moved back to Illinois to operate his one-man custom furniture shop. Along the way, he built furniture in high school, college and law school; helped run a nightclub in Washington D.C., got married and also worked six years as a full-time woodworker in the nation's capital.

His family owns about 1,000 acres in Dow, including 350 acres of sustainably managed woodlands.
