Meet the Instructors:
My background is in athletics and coaching. I have also worked in child care and with special needs adults. After a emergency medical situation literally showed up at my front door, I enrolled in a class at the Red Cross. Through that class I realized I could do more, and so I began training for the American Red Cross in 2008. I have enjoyed passing on this knowledge ever since.
I grew up in southern Wisconsin and graduated from U.W. Whitewater in 1995 with a B.S. in Occupational Safety. After graduation, I began my career as a safety coordinator in Chicago. I quickly realized the thing I enjoyed most about my career was conducting training and public speaking. In 2005, I moved to Verona with my wife, Nicole, and three young children.
I began working with the American Red Cross in 2007 and have taught thousands of people how to respond to emergency situations and save lives. Training is one of my great passions in life.
