Q: How long have you been involved with the DMSC? What’s your role within the organization?
A: I have been a Board member since January 2011.
Q: Why are you a DMSC board member?
A: If you look at anything new and exciting that happened on the cultural scene in Des Moines
in the last three years, there is a good chance DMSC had something to do with it. As a native of
central Iowa, I take pride in Des Moines and want to give back to an organization that gives so
much to the city.
Q: What’s your favorite thing about living in Des Moines?
A: It has almost everything you want in a bigger city with almost none of the headaches.
Q: What’s the best thing about Des Moines’ arts, culture, and entertainment community?

get to know the men and women behind the art.
Q: Tell us a bit about your personal involvement with the arts?
A: My wife and I met doing high school theatre and, while we no longer act, we still love going to
Q: What’s your favorite memory from a DMSC event?
A: Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom. Des Moines has never seen anything like it.
Q: What upcoming DMSC event are you most looking forward to attending?
Q: In what other ways are you involved in the Des Moines community?
A: My other primary non-profit work is for the American Mock Trial Association, which is based in West Des Moines, but runs college mock trial competitions across the country.
