Hello Fall River,
I want to take this opportunity to reach out and introduce myself as Fall River School Districts next Athletic and Recreation Director for the 2023-2024 school year!  I am thrilled to be joining a community that supports the foundations of strong academic and athletic programs community wide.  I grew up in Wisconsin, born in Monroe and resided much of my childhood in Janesville.  I attended Craig High School, where I participated in football, wrestling, baseball, and basketball, earning all conference and all region in football and wrestling.  Upon my high school graduation, I attended the University of Wisconsin River Falls where I played college football and basketball, while earning a degree in sports management with a minor in coaching and secondary education.  After graduation from River Falls, I started a career in athletics and recreation management at the Job Corps Center for the Department of Labor in St. Paul, Minnesota and later moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  After seven years in the sports and recreation industry, I returned to school and received a Master's Degree in K-12 education from George Williams College in 2014.   In 2016, I completed a masters degree from Saint Mary’s University, Minnesota in special education with a focus in behavior and trauma.  For the past nine years, I have worked for the Elkhorn Area School District working with K-12 students in a variety of roles including coaching, special education coordinator, summer school principal, and my most recent role as a workforce development coordinator.  I have also been involved with coaching football, wrestling, and strength and conditioning.  In April of 2023, I completed my Masters degree in Educational Leadership  from Saint Mary’s University.  
During my free time I am an avid sports fan, go Wisconsin Badgers!!   I am also a Chicago Bears football fan, there is a story behind why I put myself through being a Bears fan in Wisconsin.  Some of my passions outside of school include coaching, attending sporting events, hiking with my dog and family, bicycling, lifting, cooking, traveling, and old cars.  I have been married for 11 years to my wife Ann Mary and we have one daughter Brinley who is eight years old and finishing up second grade.  I would like to personally thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with such a great community.  I look forward to meeting with all of you and hope to continue to build strong academic and athletic programs for future generations to come.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything. I can be contacted at or by phone at 406-580-2720.
