I am a proud fifth-generation farmer
who produces soybeans, corn, and alfalfa on
our family's original Homestead and
on the same ground both of my
grandfathers and dad worked.
I live on the land between Orchard and Clearwater where I was raised by Harry and Dee,
my devoted parents who taught me the value of hard work and honest living.
For the past decade, I have served as a Director on the Nebraska Soybean Association and
was elected President and Chairman of the Board.
I was also on the Nebraska Ag Leaders Working Group for six years, fighting against the scourge of rising property taxes and protecting the rights and livelihoods of rural Nebraskans.
For 40 years I have been on the Orchard Rural Fire District, serving as President for ten years.
I fought for rural education for 16 years as President of the Orchard School Board and on Unified School District #1 Board. I am a lifelong member of the Orchard United Methodist Church and for a decade I have served as the Chair of the Admin Council and Finance Committee. I was also President of the Night Owls Motorcycle Club for two years.
I am lucky to share the adventures of life
with Joni, my incredible wife and
mother to our daughter Desereé.
As a family, we are committed to public service,
and I have demonstrated that through
a lifetime of community engagement
and rural advocacy.
