I was born in Schuyler and lived in a house without indoor plumbing (yes, I’m older than indoor plumbing). My folks moved to Lincoln when I was three years old so I am a long time Lincoln resident. I attended Lincoln High School and for those who went to Lincoln High will understand the meaning of, “I’m another Lincoln High job well done.” I am a graduate of the University of Nebraska with a bachelor in Biology, a masters in Civil Engineering, and employed at the Department of Environmental Quality as an environmental engineer. I am married to Corrine and have two children, four step children, and four grandchildren. I have been a member of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church since 1985. I also helped start the Lamb of God Lutheran Church in Hickman and serves as treasurer for KNNA.
