Prior to this role, I was the Assistant Principal for 8 years, taught Social Studies and Web Design and coached football and basketball at Vermillion High School for 5 years, and taught Social Studies and coached football, basketball, and track at Remsen Union for 1 year.

I grew up in Vermillion, SD where I attended high school and played football, basketball, and ran track. I received my Bachelor of Science from the University of South Dakota in History Education with a minor in Social Studies. I received my Masters in 2004 in Secondary Administration, my Education Specialist in District Administration in 2012, and my Doctorate in Education in 2014, all from USD.

My wife, Kristin, and I have three kids, Tyler, Tessa, and Tanner. I enjoy spending time with my family, travel, fishing, boating, and watching football & basketball.
