I completed my Ph.D. in political science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I my concentrations were in American political institutions and interest group lobbying. I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and went to college at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where I majored in political science and double minored in economics and history.  From there I went on to the University of Connecticut-Storrs, where I completed my masters degree in political science with a concentration in international relations.  One course I took there forever changed my academic life as I became interested in American policymaking institutions.  Then, I found my way back to the great Midwest by going to the University of Illinois for my Ph.D.

I have taught courses at the University of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign,  Illinois State University, University of Idaho and now at Grand View University. I enjoy teaching courses in American politics and public policy as well as conducting research on interest group lobbying and technology policymaking. 

My wife, Jonette, and I live  in Des Moines, Iowa with our son Zachary and Boston Terrier, Ashy.
