He also gets an opportunity to see how MUSKOX can greatly assist educational institutions in his role as an educator.

John Goerke

Born in St. Paul, MN, John's first ever job was shoveling out a dentist office a mile from his childhood home. Hours of back-breaking labor gave John a chip on his shoulder. But when he took a camera in his hand for his Eagle Scout project, he couldn't have imagined a future with MUSKOX Snowblowers. John owns Liquid Images -- a Grand Forks-based production company -- and has worked with MUSKOX for the last 3 years. John is married with 4 children. He enjoys single-origin coffee, cigars, and beating his kids in chess. Every day John can work to put more shovels out of business is a day well spent.
