Curt grew up in Des Moines, Iowa, which means he hears a lot of Iowa jokes. He attended Drake University, as did his dad and 3 of his kids. Curt graduated in Accounting and then spent a few years in Chicago getting his MBA at the University of Chicago while working in public accounting.
In 1991, Curt moved to the Twin Cities just in time for the Halloween snowstorm. He and his wife Kim have 7 kids, his two youngest are twin daughters who attend Maple Grove High School. Outside of work his kids have kept him pretty busy. Curt is a big sports fan, especially of the Iowa Hawkeyes, enjoys fishing and golfing, and is very active in his church.
