Biography

As a youngster I attended Immaculate Conception grade school in Milwaukee, and my parents moved to Appleton in the 78 which allowed me to attend St. Bernadette through grade eight.  In 1986, I graduated from Appleton East High School.  From there I attended UW – Fox Valley in Menasha. After earning an Associate’s degree, I transferred to UW – Milwaukee where I pursued a Bachelor’s of Arts degree majoring in English. Following that I attended both UW – Oshkosh and UW – Green Bay where I earned credits in education and eventually a teaching certificate and Wisconsin license. In 2000, I completed a Master’s of Arts degree from Marian University with a focus on Educational Technology. My teacher career began in 1995 at New London High School where I worked until 2012.

The last three summers focused on preparing for AP courses, and I attended the Advanced Placement Summer Institute at UW – Madison.  In addition I have been working on restructuring a CAPP Speech course through UW-Oshkosh.

Currently, I live in Appleton with my wife, three children, and Goldendoodle – Bailey. Scouting occupies many hours with a boy scouts and a daughter in venture crew. In my free time I enjoy reading, writing, playing guitar, and running. I have completed the Boston Marathon, Chicago Marathon twice, Fox Cities Marathon numerous times as a pacer, and the Eagle River Marathon.  I also enjoy writing cheesy songs, and played guitar with local musician Cory Chisel.
