Green, the son of Jeremy and Elizabeth Green, was born in Boston, Massachusetts. His family moved often, and as a child he lived in Jersey City, New Jersey, Cincinnati, Ohio, England, South Africa and Australia. He received a bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 1983. He then received a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Wisconsin in 1987.
Green was elected to the Wisconsin State Assembly in 1992, where he served for six years before being elected to the House in 1998. He was selected as Assistant Majority Whip, a position he still holds.
