Why I Wanted to Serve on the Alumni Council:

I have always been grateful to Grinnell for helping to allow me to move out beyond my midwestern, small town beginnings. I am still regularly reminded how my view of the world and my place in it have been influenced by learning and experiences I had while at Grinnell. Joining the Alumni Council is one way in which I can seek to repay my debt of gratitude by working to continuously improve the College and its relationship with the alumni community.

A Quote I Like:

"It is, Sir, as I have said, a small College. And yet there are those who love it."

―Daniel Webster (1818)

A Little Bit About Me:

My business career has been spent as a lawyer with a large multinational law firm. I am now in the process of "winding down" after 40+ years in practice. I have begun seeking to shape the next phase of my life into something stimulating and fulfilling. I am passionate about the importance of the "rule of Law" in our society, particularly in times like the present when that seems under attack.

Other Alumni Involvement: Class Fund Director; GRASP
