UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Native of River Falls, grew up on dairy farm south of River Falls, homesteaded by family in the 1850s. Graduated River Falls High School, attended UWRF and graduated with a degree in Agriculture in 1976. Worked for farm machinery dealers then started at the heating plant at UWRF in 1979. I now have a home on part of the home farm with my wife Monica. My daughter is at UW-Superior working, my oldest son is in college, and youngest son in high school.
Since 1981 I have been an officer of Local 351 and advocated for classified staff at UWRF for many issues and concerns for over 30 years. I am now on the CSAC to (maybe) continue that work.
My side interests always blow up!! I am involved with fireworks displays many western Wisconsin communities. The best part is they pay me to do it!! So I am very busy on the 4th of July.
