Ruben was born in Los Angeles, CA and moved to middle-of-nowhere Gothenburg, NE at a very young age. He grew up and graduated high school in Gothenburg before moving to Lincoln for college at Nebraska Wesleyan University and has lived in Lincoln ever since. He is married to his VERY patient wife, Angie, and they have two incredible kids, Austen and Sadie. Ruben enjoys riding his motorcycle, spending time with family and friends, and learning new things. You can usually find him cheering on the Huskers (…are there other teams??), making stainless steel wallet chains and creating vinyl graphics projects. In addition, Ruben is a proud dance/cheer dad, has a degree in K-12 Instrumental Music Ed, once rode his motorcycle just over 1,000 miles in 18 hours to complete a riding challenge, and also owns a very small vinyl graphics company called Integrity Vinyl Graphics.
