About Me




I grew up in Ord, Nebraska, a small farming community of 2500 in the middle of Nebraska on the eastern edge of the sandhills. Both of my parents were teachers.

Since College:

I am married with two boys. My wife’s name is Julie. She was an actuary, however she made a career change and now runs her own music business and is the choir accompanist at Shawnee Mission West High School. My oldest son Connor is a Senior in college at UCM (Central Missouri). My youngest son is Nicholas is a Junior at UCA (Central Arkansas).  I enjoy playing sports (mainly softball, golf, and tennis), I like to read, cook, ride my bike, and I play bridge whenever I can.

I have my Private Pilot License and fly whenever I can.
