A native of Flandreau, South Dakota, I graduated from South Dakota State University with a Bachelor of Science in Social Studies Education. For 14 years I’ve taught both American History and Economics at Pipestone Area Schools. I also coached boys and girls basketball as well as baseball. Before that I taught at the Flandreau Indian School for two years. My wife and I currently reside in Flandreau with our two children.

Recruiting and ERC intrigued me because it allows me to continue helping people become more successful in their future endeavors.
Life Outside of ERC
Most of my free time is spent with my children. I coach my daughter’s softball team in the summer and her basketball team during the winter. Although my son is too young to compete, I foresee that coaching his teams will be a big part of my future as well. I enjoy golfing, running, and watching sports at all levels. I root for the Cubs during the summer, the Fighting Irish during the fall and the Fliers all year long.
