I teach courses in the Computer Systems Technology program. This is an Associate of Applied Science degree program that will help students prepare for employment as a computer/network technician or to be part of an IT department. I also teach Microeconomics and Macroeconomics classes at SWC. I have almost 30 years of experience working at SWC, first as a business instructor and since then as a CST instructor when the program was started in 2000. Prior to that I taught at Tiospa Zina for three years. Additional prior experience includes being part owner of an Internet provider business in Watertown and doing advertising layout for a local newspaper.
I have a B.S.Ed. Degree in Elementary Education from Valley City State University, did graduate work in Economics (with a minor in Finance) at the University of North Dakota, and have a Master of Science in Information Technology degree from Aspen University.
My wife and I have lived at our current home near Sisseton for 30 years and enjoy gardening, cooking, and reading.
