Business and Community Leader
I am a 5th Generation Omahan and one of the owners of Omaha Steaks. It’s very fulfilling to work with such an incredible team at our company. I’m also proud to have been able to serve our community in various ways, including leadership positions at the Omaha Community Foundation, The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Big Brothers Big Sisters and many others over the years. I am passionate about the arts and about making our community a better place to live and I’m learning more and more about how to do that every day. My wife and I are raising two fun and creative kids and hopefully our example will be inspiring for them. The four of us live in west Omaha with our two rag doll cats.

This question is a good example of Omaha’s boosterism. It’s like an Upton Sinclair novel! Only give people a voice if it casts a glowing light on the community. It’s why the real problems never get addressed and the real problem solvers all move away.
