My Bio Born and raised in Nebraska, married to a girl who's the same way, and a father of a boy who is--so far--the same. After graduating from law school, I practiced criminal law and veterans' disability benefits law for a little over a year before moving into a job with the Department of Homeland Security.

My interests are, as you might guess from looking at my book selection, photography and drawing.
