Originally from North Dakota, my wife Connie & I have lived in Las Vegas part time since 2014, we then moved to Las Vegas full time in 2020 after the last of our 5 children finished school. I have a political science & law degree, but joined my family in the restaurant business, which became my career that lasted for 30 years. We have been attending Good Samaritan Lutheran Church for several years & became members after moving here full time. We did not feel a need to go “church shopping”. We knew after our very first visit, this was the church for us. We regularly attend the Saturday evening service & enjoy the many volunteer opportunities the church has to offer. I consider myself to be mostly retired, but still actively consult for the staff that leased my restaurants. I enjoy hiking, running, reading & traveling, as well as spending time with our dog and 4 cats.
