Brief biography

I grew up in La Crosse and attended Onalaska Luther HS.  Joined the military right out of HS. Lived in Austin, Texas with my family while working for Dell Computers. Moved back to La Crosse in 2003 and have held various business positions in sales, marketing, and IS over the last 15 years. Was fortunate enough to get an opportunity to adjunct in spring of 2018 and truly enjoyed it and was given an opportunity to come as an associate lecturer and jumped on it.

I do work full time in an IT department as director of technical product management and find that the two positions often compliment each other. My real world experience helps me give current and real world insights to my students. Teaching helps me better communicate with business users in my PM position.
