Tell us a little about your family.
I am married to Shari Rosso who markets for UNL Housing and we have two children, 18 and 23. Brett graduated from Casper Community College in Casper, WY and works for the Lincoln Water System as a GIS technician. Cameron is a senior at Southwest High School and participates in the Entrepreneurial Focus Program where he is learning about marketing and business.

What do you see as one of the biggest turning points in your life?
The first turning point was when I was hanging gutters for a contractor in Colorado Springs. I can recall peering over the roof line of a three story house and thinking I did not want to do this for the rest of my life. This turning point kept me in college and I was able to graduate with a BS in Civil engineering. Participating in collegiate shooting helped prepare me for the competitive world after college.

What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
Fish, shoot or golf.

What are you the most proud of?
I am proud to have gotten Brett through high school and into a professional position with the Lincoln Water System.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Trap shooting is an easy sport. You call for a target, they throw this orange thing, shoot it. That boiled the sport down to how easy it really is. Everything else complicates it. Like life, it’s pretty easy if you focus on the simple things.

What is the one goal you would most like to accomplish?
I would like to see LTSC move to have 13 traps and a successful sporting clays program in addition to adding a rifle range as shown in the Boosalis Park Master Plan.

How would your friends describe you?
Outgoing, energetic and friendly.

What is your greatest talent that you don’t utilize in your daily work life?
I love what I do and I get to do what I want to so I get to utilize my talents effectively.

Which talent would you most like to have?
Patience. Maybe that is not a talent, but I am not very patient and my professional life and being a LTSC Board member require it.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I would be less structured and more flexible.

What is your favorite book or the last good book you read?
I read Henry Winklers book about fly fishing, I Never Met an Idiot on the River. Also, The Fonz was a quick read and enjoyable to gain insight on a childhood icon.

What is your favorite movie?
Top Gun. The line “There are no points for second best” has stuck with me.

What is your favorite TV show?
ESPN Game Day

What is your favorite Lincoln restaurant?
Brewsky’s..wings, need I say more?
