I was born and raised in Kearney, Nebraska. After high school, I attended the University of Nebraska where I obtained a bachelor's degree in political science while playing football for the Huskers. Not surprisingly, I am passionate about Husker football. I'm also a lifelong Denver Broncos fan. After college, I attended Northern Illinois University to pursue a Master's Degree in Public Administration. Upon receiving my MPA degree, I worked as a member of a three-person management team in the city manager's office in Wheaton, Illinois. In that capacity, I gained valuable experience working in local government functions including building & code enforcement, planning & zoning, and engineering just to name a few. Several years into my city management career, I decided to pursue a law degree at DePaul University. I graduated law school magna cum laude, was a member of DePaul Law Review, and was elected to the Order of the Coif. After passing the bar exam, I worked as a civil litigation attorney on complex cases for clients from all over the United States. I was involved in many high stakes, multi-million dollar negotiations and settlements.
After working as an attorney for more than fifteen years, our family made the decision to relocate to Colorado. It was a natural choice, as my wife, Ann, is a Longmont native who attended Longmont High School. We were married in Longmont and we have deep family ties to the area. We have four children attending three different schools in Erie and my wife works at her father's dental office in Longmont. We've been thrilled with decision to relocate to Colorful Colorado. I look forward to working with buyers and sellers to help them meet their real estate goals.
