Undrafted out of college, Krause turned professional in 2006, playing with the Cincinnati Kings in the USL Second Division, finishing as the team's top scorer.[1]

Krause joined the Puerto Rico Islanders in the USL First Division in 2007. He helped the Islanders win the 2008 USL First Division regular season title and progressed to the semi finals of the CONCACAF Champions League 2008–09.

In 2008 Krause also spent a short period playing indoor soccer with the Massachusetts Twisters in the National Indoor Soccer League.[2] He also spent time with Monterrey La Raza.[3]

He joined the Hanoi team Hòa Phát Hà Nội for the 2010 season, starting January 31, 2010.[4]
