He was born in Wisconsin and attended the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. He had been the only major league player to have attended that college, until the 2009 debut of Jordan Zimmermann.

He came up to the majors in September that year, at the age of 26, and pitched 7 1/3 innings.

He was later traded to the Milwaukee Brewers, for whom he did not appear in the majors, and was signed as a free agent by the Chicago Cubs, for whom he appeared in 2 games in the majors in 1991. 25-year-old Greg Maddux was the top pitcher on the staff that year, with 15 wins.
