I met my wife Laurie while in Maine, and we’ve been together over 20 years. Laurie served as assistant principal at South Junior High, but she’s now Assistant Superintendent for District 742. We have two beautiful and silly children, Eliza (15) and Phineas (13) who go to school at Tech and South.
I’ve volunteered at their schools and coached their soccer teams, but I volunteer in the community and serve on the boards of four local nonprofits too. I also do workshops about critical thinking, citizenship, and community for teachers in public schools throughout Minnesota and in the criminal justice system. In my down time I like to play basketball and soccer, camp and travel with my family, play video games with my kids, and re-watch Star Wars movies. But not the prequels.
