Working with children and young adults is my calling, and Social Studies is my passion. Before joining the staff at St. Raphael, I taught at St. Paul City School, Providence Academy, and St. Agnes School. Prior to that, I was a preschool teacher for eight years and the owner of Team Explorers, a sports camp for kids. I have 17 years of football coaching experience at the high school and collegiate levels, and am currently the QB coach and passing game Coordinator at New Life Academy High School in Woodbury. I am also an Eagle Scout.
I grew up in West Concord in southeastern Minnesota. I live in Mendota Heights with my wife, Lissa, and our four children, Johan, Greta, Kaia, and Gunnar. We are parishioners at St. Joseph’s Church in West St. Paul.
