I joined the Daily Nebraskan Media Group in March 2020, at the start of the pandemic. After three weeks in the office we moved to working remotely, which made for an interesting start.  Prior to DNMG, I worked in sales & marketing at the Lincoln Journal Star for 11 years and Nebraska Public Media for three.  While at the JLS I created and rolled out the inaugural Lincoln’s Choice Awards, which is currently in it’s 11th year running.  During that time I finetuned my craft and found my passion for helping businesses thrive through unique marketing opportunities.  I graduated from California State University, San Marcos with a degree in Communications.  I currently live in Lincoln with my two sons and in my spare time enjoy cooking, going to concerts and spending time at the beach.


I’ve been the GM since July 2019 when my wife, two young daughters and I moved from Des Moines – the place I finished the second phase of my career as a senior editor for Gannett (Des Moines and Springfield, MO). I am responsible for all financial matters of the DN and collaborate with the student newsroom to chart the organization’s vision. I’m obsessed with our two dogs, whatever music my daughters like and the St. Louis Cardinals.
