I was born in Elbow Lake, MN and moved to Little Falls when I was five. Growing up in Morrison County, I was fortunate to attend some of the finest public schools in the state; my elementary school invited national artists to teach new lessons, we had access to the latest technology, and our high school industrial tech department featured robust automotive, woodworking, and drafting programs. I put my education to use, first attending Hibbing Community College and finally earning a degree in elementary education from St. Cloud State.
Like many people, my life was completely upended in 2008, during the great recession, when employers stopped hiring and millions lost their careers. I paid bills doing janitorial work, selling phones, packing mail, and substitute teaching around the county. After 5 years of working to make ends meet, I was fortunate to land a job teaching 4th grade in St. Cloud where I continue to work today.
Along the way I met a beautiful woman, Amy, and together we raised her infant daughter. Despite Amy's better judgement, she agreed to marry me and we now live in Little Falls with our dog and two cats (I never agreed to a second cat).
Throughout my life my teachers, scoutmasters, neighbors, and pastors have all had a huge impact on my life and taught me the importance of community; Minnesotans take care of each other. I have never forgotten the progressive values I was taught living in rural Minnesota and I'm looking to bring those same values to the Minnesota House of Representatives.
