Before coming to UNL, I served as a parish pastor in small Nebraska congregations (which brought me to Nebraska from Michigan - that would be Lake Michigan in the background of my photo). After leaving full-time work in the church, I worked as a writer/producer for a corporate video firm, creating content for Cushman, Goodyear, Novartis, SmithKline, Zeneca and many smaller industries. Every three years I assist with the Lutheran Church-Missori Synod National Youth Gathering managing the video team.
You can often find me playing bass or rhythm guitar, working as a lighting director for a local events production company or shooting video.
From time to time I freelance as a visual effects and compositing artist for independent films.
