Mt. Zion has been my church family since we moved to Hudson in 1998. Mt. Zion has been a very important part of our family with 4 baptisms, 2 confirmations, 2 weddings, and sadly 1 funeral. Over the years, I have enjoyed being involved with teaching Sunday School, Habitat for Humanity mission trips, as well as being on the Board of Finance for Council. I am a recently retired CPA and am enjoying my extra time with the five grandchildren.

My Wife, Christine and I moved to Hudson in 1993.  We have two sons, Parker at UW-Madison and Cameron a sophomore at Hudson.  Cameron is also serving on the Council as a youth deacon; a position Parker also participated in.  We joined Mt. Zion in 2005. I’ve been an engineering manager in the medical device field for over 20 years.  Christine is normally the volunteer in our family; but she encouraged me to offer my skills to aid Mt. Zion’s mission.
