I’ve spent my life being curious about all cultures around the world. I taught German, French and Applied Linguistics in University of Nebraska-Kearney’s Modern Language department. Also I developed the Office of International Education at UNK and was its former Director.
I served on the Board of Directors of the Museum of Nebraska Art for 10 years, and with my wife Janet, edit MONA’s Bison Society’s newsletter. I like involving myself in Kearney’s culture from MONA to the YMCA to Kearney’s Sister City Opava, Chechia, because it opens the doors to new cultural perspectives for Kearney.
A big part of my life has been traveling, international cooking, construction, collecting American art and pickle ball. For 20 years I was a vigneron and am still an avid gardener.
