I have lived in La Crosse most of my life. I attended Holy Trinity Grade School in La Crosse. I graduated from Aquinas High School in the Class of '87.  Four years later, I graduated from St. John's University with a degree in English and a commission in the United States Army. I attended Viterbo University to complete my teaching licensure. Two years later, I started teaching at Aquinas Middle School. I have since moved to the high school.  I have taught at the middle and high school levels in a variety of subject areas for the last 24 years. I have enjoyed working with the faculty at Aquinas Schools and the families and students who have attended. I have also had the pleasure of coaching a variety of sports throughout my career.

My wife and I have two children. They are 13 and 12 years old and attend Aquinas Catholic Schools.
