Originally from Hibbing, MN, I began my teaching career at UMD fall semester of 2000. I studied both Communication and History as a undergraduate at the College of Saint Benedict and continued my study of Communication as a graduate student at the University of Montana where I fell in love with the study of Conflict Management under the direction of Dr. Bill Wilmot. Over the years I have taught Public Speaking, Interpersonal and Conflict Management here at UMD. Fitness has also been a large part of my life and much of my graduate work focused on the study of the group fitness culture. Fortunately, I am able to combine my two loves (communication and fitness) here at UMD and have duties with RSOP as the Fitness and Wellness Coordinator. I am married to a UMD alum (Finance) who was a member of the men's hockey team long before we ever met. Together we have two lovable and hilarious sons. I enjoy exercise, tennis, hikes, Bulldog athletics and visiting my favorite place on earth, Missoula, Montana.
