In 2019, I decided to do something about my weight and I found a program that worked. Many friends and loved ones have told me how good I look, and have asked me how I did it. So, I'm telling you.
I used Ideal Weigh from Prevea, through which I lost 72 pounds in 4 months. Prior to starting, I was taking several prescription medications:
There is so much I could tell you about the program. If you want to know more, let's chat.
I've been working 30 years in IT-related positions, including web site development and service desk roles (13 years with software companies and 16 years in higher education). Prior to IT, I spent 10 years in high level customer service roles in the hotel industry, half of which in management level positions. Today I'm the Director of User Experience in the ITS division at St. Norbert College.
In October 2017, my new coworker, Autumm Caines, interviewed me for an entry in the St. Norbert College StoryCorps community. In the interview, titled "Physical and Digital Campus Environments", we talked about the college, its physical spaces, digital solutions, etc.
I served as Alderman, representing District 3 on the De Pere City Council for 8 years. I was first elected in April 2012. I was re-elected in 2014, 2016, and again in 2018. After 8 years, I decided not to run for re-election in April 2020.
StrengthsFinder is a tool that allows me discover my talents along with tools to help me use them to achieve academic, career, and personal success. My top five talent themes are:
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
President Theodore Roosevelt
April 23, 1910
"Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me."
— Mat 25:40
God has no body on earth but yours. Yours are the only hands with which He can do His work. Yours are the only feet with which He can go about the world. Yours are the only eyes through which His compassion can shine forth on a troubled world.
— St. Teresa of Avila
I enjoy classic rock and a cappella.
I sang in a barbershop quartet for 8 years.
In 2018 & 2019, I also sang in the Schola D'Arezzo Gregorian Chant Choir at St. Norbert Abbey.
