Thank you for stopping by the personal website for Clay Siefken, siefken.us. Here you can learn a little more about me, my family, and my professional background.

Personal Mission Statement

My personal mission is to try to live the eternal words of M. Gandhi, to “be the change” I wish to see in the world. I will accomplish this by working at a position for an organization that uses sound scientific principles to improve the world around us. I will also raise a family where a legacy of personal responsibility, kindness, and forward thinking are living principles that last beyond my lifetime.

I believe very strongly about maintaining personal integrity in all situations, basic dignity for all people, and leaving the world a better place after having been alive on it for a few short years.


My family and I live in Bennet, Nebraska. My amazing wife, Steph, and I have five children in our blended family. Taking care of my family is my highest priority, and my greatest pride. We call ourselves Team Ruckus, which captures the spirit of our large, energetic group.

My Profession

I have a decades-long history using information technologies, starting from my first experience programming an Apple IIe with rudimentary commands as an eight year-old in the 1980s, and culminating in a permanent career as a software professional.

My personal strengths, according to Gallup, include Strategy, Focus, Analysis, Learning, and Ideation. My Meyers-Briggs type is INTJ (“mastermind”).

What is it that I can do? I have a page for that. Check it out.
