I grew up in New Ulm, Minnesota and graduated from St. Cloud State in 2000 with a degree in Geology. I am married, and my wife, Laura, is an Accounting Manager for Deluxe Corporation. After 14 years in the Chanhassen area, we moved to Eagan in the summer of 2016. Our house is currently run for the comfort of our two dogs, Rowdy and Bruno.
Laura and I like to travel, with cruises being our method of choice. We have been fortunate to visit 17 different countries, and escape many cold winter weeks via cruise ships. My other interests include geology, paleontology, disc golf, fantasy football, and enjoying time with family and friends.
My 16 years of experience as an Environmental Consultant have found me at Braun Intertec as a Senior Scientist in the Environmental Consulting Group. At Braun Intertec, I enjoy managing projects involving environmental remediation of Brownfields sites to facilitate redevelopment. It is fulfilling to see my work have a positive community impact while supporting my clients. I also support other service areas for Braun, including property transfer environmental assessments, asbestos, and lead-based paint investigations. My professional certifications include Licensed Professional Geologist in the State of Minnesota and Certified Hazardous Materials Manager.
