I worked as the Director of Technology at Winneconne Community Schools for eight years. Prior to that I spent eight years at Winneconne as the Network Administrator and all around computer expert. In 2018 I became a Certified Education Technology Leader (CETL). Although I have never spent any time officially in the classroom, I came to learn that everyone in a school is an educator. I feel lucky to have been able to impact the students of Winneconne during my 16 years in the district.
Before I became an educator I had a varied career. In my working life I have been a stay at home father, a sales representative, a sales manager, a retail manager, and a soldier.
I have degrees in Businesss/Marketing and Management information Systems from Indiana University and The University of Wisconsin/Oshkosh. I recently enrolled into Indiana University’s Cyber Risk Managment program to earn a Masters Degree. I hope this will help me find gainful employment when we move back to the USA in a few years.
I have been blessed with over 30 years of marriage to an amazing woman. We have two children. A son practicing law in Indiana, and a daughter who works in a laboratory at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
