I grew up in Centerville, SD on a farm with 3 other brothers. I graduated in 1999 and then pursued an Elementary Education degree from the University of South Dakota. After graduating from USD I home schooled a child in Crofton, NE for 3 months before receiving a 5th grade teaching and coaching positions with the ABO school district. I have resided in Onida since. Wife- Ashley and 2 sons- Easton and Grayson.
