Still round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate.
J.R.R. Tolkien



This is my secondyear teaching at Washburn, and I am excited to share my passion for reading, writing, and teaching with everyone!  

I graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2012 with a bachelors degree in English and History, and from Augsburg College with a Masters in Education in 2015.  I did my student teaching at Southwest High School.


I am originally from Wisconsin, so I am a huge Packers fan and cheese fan.  In my free time I enjoy reading, hiking, and playing all sorts of games- video games, board games, and roleplaying games.  I have a wonderful wife, a silly hound dog, and a tiny cat.

Please feel free to contact me vie email at if you have any questions about class.


This year I am teaching three sections of Honors English 9, and two of English 11.
