I have been a teacher for 8 years here in Osceola School District. I am also the High School Assistant Wrestling Coach. I grew up just down the road in Saint Croix Falls. Upon graduation I enlisted in the Wisconsin Army National Guard. After three years attending Augsburg College I was deployed to Iraq. This was an unique experience which has affected my life greatly. After my deployment I attended and graduated from North Central University with my teaching degree. Soon after graduation I married my high school sweetheart and we now have three children, a dog and live in the surrounding area. I love family, wrestling and music along side my career in education.
