Meet Our Professional Staff
I grew up in a small town (Lyons) in Northeast Nebraska and was raised by loving parents who taught me the value of hard work, respect, and kindness. My Dad was in WW2 and was a Nazi prisoner of war and taught me the invaluable lesson to appreciate and be thankful for every day.
I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln and was a high school teacher and coach. In the 1980s I was an assistant football coach for many years at UNO under the Sandy Buda era. It was very unfortunate that the program was eliminated but we have a great Maverick Football network where players and coaches communicate on a regular basis. It is great to see players whom I have coached now have families and are successful in their chosen fields. I entered the insurance world as my own family started to grow as a way to pay the bills and I can say 30+ years later I have been fortunate to continue to do that.
I am married to my wife Roxanne and we have 3 sons, 4 grandchildren and a chocolate Labrador named, Maggie. I enjoy sporting events and have been a dedicated runner in the past and completed 11 marathons including the Boston Marathon. My wife and I like going to movies and traveling when we can. We love taking care of our grandkids and love returning them back to their parents!
I was born and raised right here in Omaha, NE and have lived in Omaha for just about 25 out of my 31 years! I graduated high school from Millard North in 2005 before attending Kansas University where I graduated in 2010 with an Economics degree. After college, I worked in finance for a few years both at TD Ameritrade as well as at Bank of the West as a financial consultant. When my father Bruce made the move to the independent channel I left finance and joined Southwell Insurance Agency in May of 2014 and have been here loving every moment. I take great pride in working directly with my father and absorbing as much information as I can. It makes me proud to tell people that we are a true family run agency!!
