Animals have fascinated me for as long as I can remember, particularly dangerous ones. The more teeth, power, and bad attitude, the closer I am drawn in.

Growing up, I spent most of my time exploring the outdoors. When inside, my face was glued to Animal Planet. My favorite shows starred Steve Irwin and Jeff Corwin. Those guys are my heroes. I wanted to be like them from episode one. Heck, I still want to be like them!

I am the father to beautiful twin girls, and married to the love of my life. We live in Lincoln, Nebraska. Our hobbies include shopping, going for long walks, and sleeping as much as we can!
