My wife Jennifer and I are both graduates from Purdue and have lived in West Lafayette since graduation in 1993. We both completed graduate programs at Purdue and were fortunate to find employment in West Lafayette. I worked for the Purdue Libraries until 2000 when I transferred to a position at Cook Biotech in the Purdue Research Park. I am currently the Director of IT at Cook Biotech and work with a team of IT professionals to support the global efforts of Cook Medical, based in Bloomington. Jennifer and I have two boys Nate and Zach. Nate started at Montessori when he was 3 and continued through the 3rd grade. Nate is currently attending Central Catholic High School. We were extremely pleased with Nate’s progress while at Montessori and believe his love of reading and kind, loving demeanor were developed during his years at MSGL. Zach is currently attending St Lawrence Elementary School. Zach has a very easy-going personality with a desire to explore and be free. He thrives on the mobility and freedom to choose activities for himself. We feel the MSGL Elementary program allowed Zach to grow and progress in his areas of interest, especially math. even though our boys are no longer attending MSGL, Jennifer and I are committed to continue to support the school.  I have served on the board for several years and look forward to continuing this service.
