I grew up outside of Goessel, graduated from Goessel High in 2003 and Tabor College in 2007. After college I lived in Washington, D.C., Hutchinson, Newton, Cimarron, Kinsley, back to Newton, and then settled down in Goessel. I married my wife in 2011 and we have 2 daughters. My primary job is working maintenance at Goessel Jr/Sr High School, but my second job is the one that I enjoy the most. I am a football and basketball official and currently work both sports at the high school and collegiate level. This takes me to colleges all over Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, and Oklahoma. I am always proud to say that I live in Goessel and tell people about it. I want to help the city move along with the changing world, but also keep the small town atmosphere that is drawing more people to our town.
