I've been a teacher here at UMA for 4 years and a teacher for 17 years. Prior to teaching at UMA I was a teacher in the Minneapolis School District. I enjoy many outdoor activities but cringe when the temp drops below 0 degrees. I have a wife Karen who is also a educator and is still in the Minneapolis School District. We have two wonderful children who are a full of energy and lots of fun. In my spare time (what?) I enjoy cooking, cleaning and doing laundry.
