About Me
Short Personal Description: 

I came to Colorado as soon as I could after graduating from college in Madison, Wisconsin and growing up in central Wisconsin.  Before becoming a teacher I studied philosophy, volunteered and worked in some off road shops in Denver and Golden.  In 2006 I started graduate school at CSU where I was reminded how I had been ignoring the call to teaching for too long.  After completing my teacher licensure courses, I have been lucky enough to be at RMHS since the Fall of 2010.

 

Educational and Professional Background: 
  • University of Wisconsin-Madison, WI

                    BA Philosophy and Biology, Spring 2004

  • Colorado State University-Fort Collins, CO

                    MA Philosophy, applied ethics, Fall 2013

What does the Lobo Way mean to me?: 

The Lobo Way is the form of the good.  It is what you do to help others when no one is looking, not because you are asked to or told to, but because you know it is the only choice.

Interest & Hobbies: 

When I started graduate school, I became involved with timbersports at CSU.  Since then I have been traveling and racing across the west and midwest to 10-12 contests a year including the Stihl Timbersports Series.  Other than woodchopping, I spend most of my time walking my hound dog and studying olympic weightlifting.  I visit my family in Wisconsin frequently and enjoy spending the summers with them and the midwestern humidity.  I take great pleasure in growing beards, listening to music and being outside.
