My wife Erin and I have attended Genesis since 2014. We have two children, Linnea (3) and Lachlan (1). I love that Genesis is a safe place to ask questions and to not have it all figured out. We embrace each other through grief and celebrate joyous occasions. I love conversations with those who have different views than my own because by opening my heart I am able to deepen my understanding of what it looks like to follow Jesus. I am a physical education teacher for a school in Minneapolis. I enjoy being a mentor to students and new staff, guiding them through the challenges they face and counseling them through their daily conflicts. Having recently finished my masters in Educational Leadership, it is my hope to bring leadership skills and my experience working with staff and students to strengthen and develop our kids and youth programming.
