I graduated from Northern Illinois University, which is in DeKalb, Illinois (home of barbed wire) with a degree in history and I have a master's degree in teaching from Pacific University in Forest Grove.
My wife and I have three daughters ranging from three to 12 years old and we live in Canby. They generally keep me very busy, so when I'm not at school, I am probably doing something with them.
I also LOVE sports. I played tennis, basketball, soccer, and football at various levels throughout my life and during inclement weather, my weekends are generally spent watching football (soccer) and football (American).
