I am starting off on my seventh year in the district at Gleason Lake Elementary, my fifth year in fourth grade. I live in Brooklyn Center with my wife, Rachel, and we have a beautiful 21 month old daughter named Sophie. We also have a 4 year old "Labradinger" (Lab/Springer mix) named Charlie. I graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN with a degree in Elementary Education. My emphasis is on Social Studies. I really enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to Twins games, as well as spending time at the family cabin. In the near future I also hope to begin work on my Master's Degree as well!
