About Me

I have been happily married to my wife, Melanie, for over 36 years. We have lived in Bismarck since 1983, where we raised our daughter, Callie, and son, Tyler. I have been "Benedictine" for over 38 years first by serving St. Alexius and now serving the University of Mary. Throughout my time here I have been blessed by being surrounded by great people with a unified commitment to serve the needs of others

Why I’m At Mary

The Benedictine values have resonated with me my entire career. I appreciate not only what the University of Mary has to offer, but also the chance to serve our students — to help them along their journey to become what God intended them to be.


My role is to help advance the mission of the University of Mary. We do that by engaging others to support what we do here. In Mission Advancement we fundraise, create awareness about all the wonderful things happening at the University, host events, and serve as good stewards of donor gifts.
