I was born and raised here in White Bear Lake. So too was my wife, Molly. We are both lifelong residents of White Bear. Molly and I are blessed to have two beautiful daughters, Frankie (5) and Eden (3). We are proud parishioners of St. Mary’s of the Lake. In my free time, you can find me on the lake with my family or on the golf course.
I am a 2004 graduate of White Bear High School where I played baseball. I completed my general studies at Century College. I then transferred to the University of Minnesota for my junior and senior years where I received a bachelor’s degree in political science. Following undergrad, I attended William Mitchell College of Law where I received my Juris Doctor. While in law school, I was a student prosecutor for the City of White Bear Lake where I prosecuted local traffic violations and crimes ranging from speeding tickets to DWIs.
I am a practicing attorney. My past legal experience includes representing cities, law enforcement, and small businesses. My past involvement in the community includes serving on the Parks Commission and coaching T-ball for the school district. I presently serve on the Charter Commission.
My family’s roots in this community span four generations. I love that White Bear Lake has a small-town feel yet offers so much by way of restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and recreation. Over the past few years, I have grown increasingly concerned that one day White Bear will turn into a community that I no longer recognize, which would be a shame. I am in this election to preserve that which my family, and so many other families, enjoy about this city. If you share my desire to preserve all that makes White Bear Lake great, then I ask for your vote on November 2.
