I started teaching with UW Colleges in 2007 and enjoy the continuing challenges of educating both young and not-so-young learners. My wife and I also own and manage a small family resort north of Spooner. In my free-time, I enjoy fishing, gardening, prairie restoration, gathering wild rice, cheering for the Packers, and duck hunting. Anytime I can do these things with family is the best time. I spend a lot of time making firewood, so I guess I enjoy that too! Prior to teaching with UW Colleges, I was a Waterfowl Biologist with the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Laurel, Maryland. I am a proud parent of 2 boys.
