I was born and raised in Pella, graduating in 1986 from Pella High School. I have been a part of the Maintenance Department since 2010, currently working with the HVAC Systems in the district. I have been coaching in the district since 1992 in the either the football, basketball or softball programs. I’ve been married to my wife, Jan, since 1990 and we have 2 children, Jazz and Jake. I like to stay active with going to my children’s activities, playing golf, working on sprint cars or going to sporting events with my family. One of my goals everyday is to enjoy the day and have fun while doing so.
