I grew up in small towns in North Dakota.  Most of my childhood was in Mott.  When I was a sophomore in high school, we moved to Bowman, and I went to Gackle-Streeter school for my senior year.  I started out studying Math Education at NDSU.  Going into my 4th year of college, I went to Catholic Seminary at Cardinal Muench Seminary in Fargo.  I spent two years there and one semester in Denver at St. John Vianney Theological Seminary.  When I left seminary, I decided to finish my math education degree at VCSU.

I started my career in education in Linton where I taught math for 8 years.  I coached golf for 7 of those years, junior high girls basketball for 3 years, and I was the acalympics advisor for all 8 years.  In December of 2013, I received my master’s degree in Educational Leadership.  My wife, Kimberly, and I were married on December 31, 2010.  We have 3 kids, Maria, Lily, and Thomas.

I am excited to be the high school principal at Center-Stanton Public School.  My philosophy is to do what is best for kids, so I strive to make decisions that will most benefit our students.  My hope is to build a positive school culture where students have the ability to learn and excel in many aspects of their life.
