A native of Story City, Iowa, I began my duties as principal of Linn-Mar High School on July 1, 2008. I served as associate principal at Linn-Mar from 1998-2008. Prior to Linn-Mar, I taught social studies at Center Point – Urbana High School and at Saint Edmond High School in Fort Dodge, where I also served as the Academic Dean.
I have a B.A. from Central College (Political Science and English), M.A. from the University of Iowa (Educational Administration), and Ph.D. from the University of Iowa (Curriculum and Supervision/Secondary Education).
My wife, Sarah, and I reside in Marion with our four children.
