Quick introduction...

My wife and I recently moved to the Minneapolis area from Rochester, MN. I have two beautiful kids, a 12 year-old daughter from my first marriage that lives with us on regular weekends and a 13 month old son. We have been married over four years and I am blessed to have the family I have. I enjoy my time with them immensely.


Little background on me, I am the youngest of eight boys raised on a farm just outside of the Green Bay, WI area (yes I am a Packer fan). My family is huge... In fact I have nephews and nieces older than my wife who have kids older than my kids. I was raised Catholic and went to a Catholic grade school, high school and college. I often miss the times on the farm and the lessons learned there, as the events that happened truly shaped who I am today.


I have many interests besides my family, hiking, biking, camping, music, reading, and travel. I am slowly teaching myself how to play the guitar. Don't expect any concerts, or open mike night appearances as I will not be Claptonesque until the year 2045.

I am excited to write for this blog as I value my family and want to gain insight from others on being a good husband, father, and friend. I look forward to sharing my thoughts on fatherhood, family and also lessons I learned from my parents and want to teach my children.

Hey! My first two boys were born in Green Bay! I could've cared less about football when we moved there, but you bet we're Packer fans now. Welcome to the blog - I look forward to reading your posts.

Thanks Tim! I'm looking forward to reading a dad's perspective on parenting in the Midwest!
