I started at Pella Community School District in 2010 as the Systems Administrator. In 2012 I took over as the Technology Director for the district. Working in a continually changing field and a continually changing educational environment has made the job very excited. I enjoy the variety of projects and issues that our team gets to work on and being able to interact with the students is a great perk. I am excited about encouraging our staff and students about 21st century learning skills and preparing them to be great digital citizens. I also coach high school football and middle school track here at Pella. It has been a great way for me to interact with the students and remain active through them.
I attended Central College, majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics, and graduated in 2007. I played football and ran track at Central and those are some of my fondest memories of college. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife Steph and our two kids Cooper and Addison, running marathons, and watching sports.
