Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs. He is married and has one daughter.

Hans heads. His editorials and essays have been published in the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Duluth News Tribune, International Herald Tribune, Hellenic Voice, Breakpoint web site, Front Page Magazine web site, Institute for Religion and Democracy web site, Discover web site, and more.
