I’m running for legislature because Nebraskans are hard-working, honest, and caring people. Our Legislature is supposed to be independent and put Nebraskans above partisan politics. The current Legislature doesn’t represent that anymore. It’s controlled by wealthy donors and politicians who want to divide us. I’ll work to bring people together and restore common-sense solutions to the challenges we face everyday.
I grew up here in Nebraska. I moved away for career opportunities but chose to come back 18 years ago to start a family and build a successful business. As your state senator, I’ll apply the same lessons used to build our company: listen, collaborate, and put in the work to get results. I will ensure that your family has every opportunity to be successful in Nebraska, just like mine.
I am a 5th-generation Nebraskan who grew up on a cow-calf ranch near Bartlett, in Wheeler County. I co-founded Vivayic, Inc. in 2006 in Lincoln, where we employ 55 people. I am a founding member of Neighbors United Methodist Church, Past Treasurer of the Nebraska FFA Foundation, and Member of the NE Farm Bureau. My wife, Carrie, and I have been married for 18 years. We have two sons and live in northwest Lincoln.
