Family and Hobbies
My wife, Jennifer, and I have been married for 19 years.  We have three children, Kaia, who is an 8th grader at Kasson-Mantorville Middle School, and Cael, who is a 2nd grader at KM.  In January of 2018 we welcomed Kara to our family! We enjoy camping and being outdoors and are thrilled to be a part of the Kasson-Mantorville communities.
