More about me:

While new to writing reflections with Creighton’s Online Ministries, I am privileged to have been a part of the Creighton family for three years now.  As Assistant Director of Magis Catholic Teacher Corps since 2014, I work to form and support new teachers in Catholic schools as they embark on this rewarding and demanding vocation, as well as foster and strengthen our partnerships with Catholic schools and dioceses across the Midwest.  Magis teachers (who are also graduate students in Creighton’s Education Department) continually and unfailingly show that the Church will thrive in the hearts and witness of those it continues to form, particularly in Catholic schools.

A native Nebraskan, I grew up the youngest of six children and raised by parents who modeled love and sacrifice and service to others.  After graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I taught at a Catholic high school in Florida, earning my Master of Education from the University of Notre Dame’s Alliance for Catholic Education.  I continued to teach in Louisiana and Puerto Rico until my wife, Amy, and I returned to our roots in Nebraska.  In addition to working with Magis, I am pursuing my Doctor of Education in Interdisciplinary Leadership at Creighton, focusing in Catholic Educational Leadership. 

Amy and I have two wonderful children and enjoy visits with them to the park, the zoo, and Fontenelle Forest.  I am an avid Nebraska Cornhuskers fan and enjoy reading primarily nonfiction, unless it’s Hemingway!


Writing these reflections:

I have much gratitude for Creighton and its Online Ministries in offering this opportunity to be a part of this particular ministry.  I hope that God may somehow work through my words to reach those who follow these daily reflections as I, too am brought closer to Him by the words of other contributors.
