I like playing golf, basketball, baseball, softball and Volleyball. I attended Austin Community College for two years and received my Associate Arts degree in Chemistry. I then attended Mankato State University and obtained my B.S. in Computer Science. While going to school I also worked as a Part-Time Firefighter with the City of Mankato. My duties included Driver/Operator, Fire Suppression and Public Education at schools and businesses. I worked for IBM in Rochester, MN as a Contractor with the AS/400 Division for two years, before transferring to my new job as a Product Support Specialist with Metafile Information Systems in Rochester, MN. While working in Mankato as a Firefighter, I finally realized my dream of being a Firefighter. Even though I enjoy my current job, I will always be waiting for that opportunity to be a Firefighter again. The thrill of fighting a fire and knowing you are helping someone makes you feel good about yourself. I also loved doing Public Education at the local schools and helping the kids understand what they should do if there ever was a fire. I will be updating this page more and more as I collect more memorabilia. So check back often and let me know what you think.
