I was born and raised in Wisconsin. After 18 years of small town living, I was ready to explore the world. I moved out to Colorado after college and taught in Aurora. Then my wife and I moved to Germany and Ecuador for 4 years where we got to really live and learn from different cultures. I also gained a greater respect for my German heritage, and how it is still preserved in the United States.
We have happily settled in to this wonderful community and started a family with our new daughter. I volunteer frequently with the Fort Collins Bike Co-Op.

The classroom will be what we all make of it. I will do my best each day, and I hope that each of my students will too.
