September 23, 2012I grew up 10 miles south of Hastings on a farm. After graduating from Hastings College, I went to work for Arthur Andersen, of Enron fame, for four years. I decided I wanted a life style change and went back to school and received my teaching degree. I taught for 15 years, many of them in western Kansas. After returning to Nebraska I worked three years as the technology director for Adams Central. I then moved to ESU 9 for four years, where I did technology integration, with an emphasis on PowerSchool support. During those four years I was lucky enough to work with the wonderful people of ESU 10 and their schools, where I developed some great relationships.
An interesting occurrence in my life was I was only a few blocks away when the bomb blew up at the ‘96 Olympics in Atlanta. A few months later I realized I possibly had video of the bomber entering the area of the explosion and my video and I ended up on Dateline
and Good Morning America.
I enjoying working, learning and helping other people. My wife is Camille and we have four wonderful kids; Casey 20, Jessica 18, Brett 14 & Spencer 6. I have reached some family milestones this month with my 6 year old Spencer starting kindergarten and my oldest
son Casey turning 21 at the end of the month.
