How I came to Multnomah

I am a native Oregonian; I attended Multnomah as a student after completing a six-year enlistment in the Navy’s nuclear power program and serving for four years on board the USS Truxtun. In addition to meeting my wife, Anne Marie, at Multnomah, I also developed a passion for integrating intellectual pursuits with Christian spirituality and discipleship. My academic interests include theological epistemology (his doctoral dissertation examined the influence of Scottish Common Sense Philosophy on Charles Hodge and the “Old Princetonians” and its relation to postmodern epistemology), the history of theology, the relation between religion and science, apologetics, and theological ethics.


In addition to my studies and teaching in philosophy, theology, and ethics, I enjoys time with my wife and two sons Jacob and Benjamin.

Church Involvement

My family and I worship at St. Matthews Anglican Church in Portland, Oregon. One of my favorite Scriptures is Romans 12:1-2.
