I grew up in the Twin Cities. My wife, Michele, and I have three children; Meghan (MLHS alumni), Seth (grade 8), and Delaney (grade 4).
I graduated from Concordia University in Chicago with a BA in Elementary Education in 1992. I have taught at three Lutheran Schools: Pilgram Lutheran in Santa Monica California, St. James Lutheran in Quincy Illinois and here at CCLS. I received my Masters in Educational Leadership from Concordia University St. Paul.
Since starting as the principal at St. Paul- St. Peter (now CCLS) in 1999, I have been a part of our building project, designing and building the school, creating our Strategic Plan and the hiring of many staff.
As a Christian leader, I am most proud of the positive nature of our school, which reflects the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I also serve as the 7-8th grade homeroom teacher. I love teaching and working with students and seeing them grow as Christian leaders. I usually lead lots of chapels every year and enjoy sharing my faith with kids because that is why our Lutheran schools exist!
When I am not teaching or leading our school I enjoy spending time with my family, doing woodworking, hanging out with friends, watching the Twins or Vikings, exercising, camping, fishing and continuing to learn.
