With outside stints as a police officer in Jefferson County, Kentucky, a truck driver and an insurance adjuster, he returned to IU in 1985, joining the Property & Casualty Insurance Department, later the Office of Risk Management and finally Insurance, Loss Control & Claims. He has been director since 1987.
