- B.S. in Forest Management, University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point, 1998
I was born and raised in southeast Wisconsin in a small town called Oconomowoc. I graduated from high school there, spent one semester at the University of Kentucky and then went on to University Wisconsin at Stevens Point. While at UWSP I accepted Christ as my personal Savior which dramatically changed the course of my life in a very positive way and I met my wife Anne. We were married in June of 1997, graduated from UWSP in the spring of 1998 and moved to the Northwoods to start a job as a forester with a small private consulting firm. After three and a half years of walking through the woods (literally) the Lord brought me to HoneyRock. Here at HoneyRock I manage the grounds and the activity areas as well as respond to various maintenance needs as part of the Site and Facilities team. My wife and I have a son Samuel and two daughters, Libby and Emma. We live south of Three Lakes.
I met Jesus Christ as my personal Savior while I was at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point. Throughout my childhood I attended church regularly and clearly understood who Jesus was and is but it was not until I came to the very end of myself in college that I realized I had never invited Jesus to be Lord of my life. What a joy it has been and continues to be as I see God direct my steps instead of me trying to go it alone. One interesting note is that my wife Anne (who was not my wife at the time) led me to Christ.
The thing I love most about working at HoneyRock is having the opportunity to pour into people's lives whether they are a camper, student, staff member, retreat guest or whoever. It is also a privilege to serve people by providing a restful peaceful, creative environment where they can hopefully hear and see God more clearly.
