I graduated high school from Brookings, SD. I attended Dakota State University where I majored in Biology for Education and also played football.  After graduation I taught science and coached for one year in Kimball, SD.  After getting married to my wife Amanda, I took a science teaching position in Arlington, SD. While living in Arlington I obtained my Masters in Educational Administration from South Dakota State University. Upon completing my degree, I was fortunate enough to become the 7-12 principal in Custer, SD. During my three years in Custer I started working on my Educational Specialist degree from the University of South Dakota.  Which brought my family and I to Faulkton this past summer.  We have thoroughly enjoyed becoming a part of this community.  We have always talked about being able to get closer to family and back to a great small community of South Dakota. My wife Amanda and I have two children. Addilyn, 5, and Kroy is 18 months.
