My wife and I currently reside in Lake Elmo with our four children.  I attended Augsburg College for my undergraduate studies and Hamline College for graduate school. I have been a teacher for roughly eighteen years. The majority of these years have been at Capitol Hill.

My hobbies and interests include running, reading, playing the guitar, snowboarding, traveling and spending time with family, friends, and pets!

How is giftedness defined?

“Children and youth with outstanding talent who perform or show the potential for performing at remarkably high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment.”
– US Department of Education, 1993


 Parenting for High Potential is a magazine designed for parents who want to make a difference in their children's lives, who want to develop their children's gifts and talents, and their potential to the fullest.

Connecting for High Potential sheds light on how the "other side" might face the issue.
