I grew up in Oshkosh and studied Forest Management at UW-Stevens Point. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, camping, running, fly fishing, and hunting. I always knew I wanted to work outdoors. Growing up, I had an appreciation for forests and now understand first-hand the wide array of services a healthy forest provides. Helping landowners achieve their forest objectives is the most rewarding part of being a forester.

What I like about Vilas County: The people and the setting are both wonderful. I appreciate our rural landscape and the many recreational opportunities it affords. It supports both tourism and forestry while providing abundant wildlife.
