Background: 

Originally from Grand Island, NE - I made my way to NWU in my brother Andy's footsteps (he was a senior when I was a freshman). After graduating from NWU in 2004, I immediately started at the Weary Center running the Event Management program. Over the years, I've also become responsible for the Campus Rec program (open recreation & swimming pool) and other various tasks around the Weary Center.

I married my best friend Melissa in 2009 & we have two beautiful baby kiddos. We were blessed with big brother Ethan in 2011 and baby sister Aubrey came in July 2013. They're the two best kids we could have ever asked for.
