Edwin, or Ed as we call him, was raised in Defiance, Ohio, but moved to West Michigan as a teenager. He fell in love with Michigan as a camp counselor, and has continued to grow in his admiration for the Great Lakes state every year since. Edwin is not your conventional educator, he spent his early teaching years in alternative education before becoming a prison teacher. He eventually found his niche in Beer City by developing the relationships he built as an advisor. Edwin continues to enjoy this great state, spending a great deal of time outdoors with his wife Karen and kids Lara, Zion and Micah.
