Riverland has been part of my life for 34 years now. I started out teaching Electronics and taking care of the college’s electronics, but as computers became more popular, I was tasked to launch the Microcomputer Support Specialist program, as well as handling the PCs within the college. As the college’s computer network grew, teaching was set aside to concentrate on managing our computer systems. Supporting student’s and employee’s technology needs including solving problems, purchasing and deploying new equipment, and managing information and data has inspired me as well as kept me very busy. I am currently Director of Technology and Owatonna Campus Director.
Prior to working at Riverland, I started my employment at the OTEK Division of Sealed Power Corp in Owatonna from 1984 to 1988. I was a Customer Service Technician from 84-87, then served as Customer Service Supervisor from 87-88.
My lovely wife Liz and I have been married for 36 years and have lived in Waseca since 2016. Our adult son lives in Mankato. We both enjoy travel and pickleball, and I enjoy volleyball as well.
