B.A. Psychology, Gustavus Adolphus College '86
Originally from International Falls, MN, I came to Gustavus in the fall of 1982, met my future wife Julie in the spring of 1983, married in 1985, and graduated together in the class of 1986. Following graduate studies in Industrial/Organizational Psych at the U of M and UW-Oshkosh, I entered the hospitality industry in various managerial capacities until returning to Gustavus in 1994 as the Dining Service Director.
Julie and I have 3 fantastic children, Matthew, Bethany, and Grace and a menagerie of family pets. I enjoy a wonderful extended family, many, many good friends, my work and co-workers at Gustavus, all athletics, the outdoors, and especially my shack in the woods of Northern Minnesota.
