PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

  • Originally worked as an HVAC contractor in the Ramsey and Anoka area.
  • Seeing the many troops making sacrifices in the Iraq war, enlisted in the Active Army as a combat medic learning trauma medicine and clinical procedures.
  • After four years of service, returned to Minnesota and pursued his passion for all things mechanical through an Automotive Service degree at Dunwoody College of Technology.
  • Following graduation, was hired by BMW as a technician and enjoyed this position until he was offered his dream job as a stay-at-home dad.
  • His two boys are now students at PACT, so to be more involved with their education took a position as a PACT daytime custodian.

LIFE OUTSIDE PACT

  • Spends summers as a family tubing and swimming in the Rum River near their home.
