If you could meet any one person, who would it be? Why?
I’m going to expand by saying that I would enjoy meeting 2 people. I never had the opportunity to meet either of my grandpas as both went to be with the Lord 5 years before my birth. However, both were fascinating men based on the stories that I’ve been told. And, apparently, many of my own personality traits and mannerisms closely parallel both of those men so I’m certain we would’ve seen eye-to-eye on many things. I would’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to know them in life because they were devoted family men, had entrepreneurial spirits, could fix anything, and were well-respected gentlemen – all things that I strive for.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of work? Why?
First and foremost is spending time with my wife and daughter. But, when they get tired of me, I like to be outdoors. As an avid outdoorsman, I enjoy a wide range of hobbies from fishing and hunting to helping my family farm.
What is your favorite piece of technology? Why?
It depends on the context. In my everyday life I would have to say it is my phone. The Droid keeps me organized. But, if we switch contexts back to the farm, I am big into precision agriculture. I think precision agriculture is the future of farming because it promotes efficiency by allowing producers to maximize their output by minimizing input.
Where did you graduate from college?
University of Nebraska – Lincoln. Currently pursuing my MBA from the University of Nebraska – Kearney.
If you were a type of food or drink, what type of food or drink would you be? Why?
This is an easy one. A meat/potato dish. I mean c’mon, nothing says Midwest like a plate full of meat and potatoes.
