Educational Background
BS in Health and Physical Education, UW Stevens Point
MS in Exercise Physiology, Purdue University
PhD in Exercise Physiology, Purdue University


Research Agenda / Areas of Interest
My areas of interest include mentoring new faculty as well as seeking donations for the annual "Schmidt Don't Quit" Kinesiology scholarship bike ride across Wisconsin.


Outside Interests / Hobbies
I love spending time with family and especially spoiling my grandkids. Hiking, kayaking, and biking with my wife all around our beautiful state and the U.P. also brings me great joy.


"What does it mean to be a Kinesiology faculty member at UW Oshkosh?"
These days it means having the opportunity to work with a more diverse and gifted group of students who are highly motivated and driven to succeed.  Fortunately we have a very talented group of faculty members who feed off of this positive energy to help create a great work environment. Every day brings a new challenge and a new opportunity.


"When they graduate from our program, I hope that my students..."
...will look back fondly on their days at UW Oshkosh as a time when they discovered the person they really were and the person they could eventually become.
