About

Bio

I am a very family-oriented person, spending much of my non-working hours with my wife, five children, and parents. I am also an active member of St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church, having accompanied the youth group on multiple mission trips. I've lived in Wisconsin my entire life, except for the two years I spent in fellowship training following my residency. I enjoy the outdoors, and taking my two dogs on various hunting trips. I am committed to Wisconsin and the continued growth and prosperity of this state.
