• Hello everyone!

    I was born in Billings, MT, but have lived all around the state. I went to high school in Missoula, MT and attended MSU in Bozeman for college. I taught middle school and high school math and science in Denver, CO for two years, but couldn't wait to return back to my home state. I am excited to be a part of the Red Lodge community and share my passion for mathematics!

    I got married last September!

    For our honeymoon, we went to Mexico over Christmas vacation. We went scuba diving and visited several Mayan ruins.

    Last winter, my wife (Dani) and I were voted the King and Queen of the Red Lodge Winterfest. (Thanks for those that voted!) The theme was superheros.

    I love enjoying the outdoors of MT! My main hobbies include tennis and frisbee golf in the summers in addition to snowboarding and bowling in the winters. I also like camping, hunting, rafting, ultimate frisbee, golfing, playing guitar and playing board games. Also, I never miss an opportunity to compete in various yard games...ask me about kubb!

    I lived in New Zealand for three months while I completed my student teaching. I have also had the pleasure of taking trips to Honduras, Switzerland, Germany and Japan, in addition to various visits around our great country.  I always look forward to the next fun adventure!
