I grew up the youngest of four children in the Milwaukee area. After attending Siloah and St. John, Wauwatosa, I graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran High School. From there, I went on to Martin Luther College and graduated in 2001.
My ministry began with an emergency call to St. Peter in Schofield, where I finished the school year as the 7/8 grade teacher. I was then assigned to St. Matthew, Oconomowoc where I served as the sixth grade teacher and athletic director for 11 years.
My wife Carrie (Dietlein) and I reside in Ixonia. We have been blessed with two children: Ashley and Lukas. Ashley and Lukas attend St. Matthew's, Oconomowoc where we are members.
As a family, we enjoy taking trips "Up North" and visiting my wife's family in Michigan. I am an avid fisherman and hunter and also enjoy rooting for our Wisconsin sports teams. I am excited to have the opportunity to serve the Lord at Lakeside and consider it a blessing and privilege.
Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.
