I teach all sections of Technology here at St. Hubert School. I am excited and humbled to be part of such an engaged, talented, and dedicated team of teachers and administrators.
I graduated from Hamline University in 2012 with a Master's in education, preceded by a degree from the University of Wisconsin in Secondary Education in 1992. I met my bride Lisa in 1992, and we married in 1995. At home we have two cocker spaniels named Lulu and Zoey, and a fish tank filled with African Cichlids from Lake Malawi in Kenya.
I have worked in a variety of roles in my life, which stem from my first professional experience as a downhill skier testing equipment for Hart Skis, Marker Ski Bindings, and Reusch racing apparel in 1982. I also was a lead instructor at a variety of local ski areas where I instructed over 10,000 students beginning through professional abilities in my brief eight-year career.
In 1990, I was selected by the Athletic Training staff of the Kansas City Chiefs as an intern, and served coach Shottenheimer’s team in all aspects of player game/practice preparation and physical rehabilitation.
As a technologist, the first computer I used was a Teletype machine in 1976. In 6th grade I taught myself how to write computer code using the BASIC language. In college I purchased my first IBM 286 computer, and began programming in FORTRAN, PASCAL, and renewed my work using V-BASIC computer languages. I progressed to Macintosh and Windows computers after college, and built my first computer in 2002.
My passion for technology was born on a noisy machine in an empty English classroom, and endures today in my role as educator here at St. Hubert School.
