About Me

My wife Kathy and I live in Fort Collins with our two younger sons, Will and Jeff, who are juniors at Fossil Ridge. Kathy teaches 4th Grade at Bethke Elementary. My son Zach is a junior at CSU and my daughter Ana works as a chemical process engineer in Boulder. 


BA in Economics from University of Illinois, MA in Teaching from National Louis University, MA in Administration from Northern Illinois University.


I was born and grew up in Wheaton, Illinois, a Southwest suburb of Chicago. We raised our family in Geneva, a little west of Wheaton.  We moved to Fort Collins 3 years ago and we love it!


I like to run, snowboard, ski, mountain bike, and camp!  I think I found the right place to live!

Favorite Quote: 

May you grow up to be righteous 
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth 
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous 
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young.

Bob Dylan
