Biography

Growing up on a family farm near Balaton, MN I learned the value of a hard days work and the impact agriculture makes on our society. Upon graduating from high school I completed my undergraduate degree in Agriculture Engineering at SDSU and later completed my MS in Mechanical Engineering from Boise State University in Boise, ID. I have been fortunate to enhance my degrees through a variety of industry experiences over the last 20 years and have recently transitioned into a role as an instructor here at SDSU.
