I grew up near Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I graduated from Iowa State and went to optometry school in Memphis.

After graduating from the Southern College of Optometry, I did a one-year residency in pediatric vision care, vision therapy, and vision rehabilitation. I moved back to Iowa after completing my residency in 2011, and opened Child and Family Vision Center that same year.

I currently live in Ames with my wife, Kristie, our two boys Izak and Konnor, and our two cats Walter and Dr. Claw.

In my free time, I enjoy watching Iowa State football and basketball, the Bears, and riding my bike in preparation for RAGBRAI every year.
