Craig is no stranger to Minnesota. A proud 1988 graduate of Minnetonka High School, his love for building was founded at a young age. He attended Drake University where he majored in Business Management.

His understanding of the residential housing market started in 1999 when he founded a mortgage company in Minnetonka. In 2008, he began Madison River Ventures, where he attained his General Contractor License.

When Craig isn’t working at Barnwood Group, he enjoys spending time with his wife of 28 years, Janie, and three kids, Justin, Max, and Gabi. They love being outdoors with their two labs, Teddy and Sammy. You’ll also find Craig on the golf course, fishing on the lakes, hunting the fields and building hockey rinks.
