(This my "personal" Google+ account. You can find my professional account here.)
I grew up near Crosby, Minnesota... went to Ironton Elementary and then C-I jr. and sr. high. My family were members at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Deerwood.
I graduated from C-I in 1992 and when to the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities campus) where I majored in Aeronautical Engineering through my sophomore year. In my junior year I switched to Political Science before having a "reversion" and returning to a deeper Catholic faith. I transferred to FUS in 1995 and graduated from there in 1997. I did my grad studies in Rome at the Angelicum, ultimately earning a doctorate in Theology. Along the way I married Germaine, and we currently have five kids, but since this is the internet, I'll leave them out of this. :-)
