I grew up in the tiny town of Medford, WI (home of Tombstone Pizza!) where I was confirmed from Immanuel Lutheran Church. After graduating from Medford Area Senior High, I attended UW-Madison and graduated with a History degree. Afterward, I received my teaching certificate from University of Illinois-Springfield and then moved to the Milwaukee area. I started teaching at Word of Life Lutheran on Milwaukee’s south side in various roles, while teaching there I received my WELS certification. Now, I serve St. Paul’s Franklin as 5/6th grade teacher (and 7/8th English and 3/4th PE) and athletic director.
I am blessed with a wonderful wife, Kayla (who teaches K5 German), and three children that attend St. Paul’s: Will (4th grade), Press (2nd), and Aggie (K). We have a small, ferocious miniature schnauzer, Schatzi, that loves walks, eating spilled food, barking, and sleeping. Our free time is spent at parks, playgrounds, the lake, different sports facilities, and exploring many different restaurants in Milwaukee. When I have some (actual) free time, I enjoy reading, anything with sports, sleeping(!!!!), playing video games and finding the worst possible shows and movies to watch.
