Why I chose Multnomah

I have been at a variety colleges and universities over the course of my career and one thing I've figured out is that I don't want to work for a generic school. Multnomah is far from generic . . . in fact, I don't think there's another university like MU in the entire western United States. I was very attracted to Multnomah's outstanding reputation: The depth and breadth of our academic offerings and the emphasis on biblical scholarship for all students is simply unparalleled.

Favorite Bible passage

Probably Romans chapter 5. Verses 7 and 8 jump out at me: "Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners."

Favorite thing about Portland

I love seeing Mt. Hood over the Columbia River. I also like the diversity of the city and the individuality of how people express themselves in how they dress, their hairstyles, what they eat, types of activities and more.

Favorite candy

Wow . . . I'm not a candy fanatic but I tend to like things that combine salty-n-sweet, like peanut M&Ms, Boston Baked Beans or Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

States I've lived in

Michigan, California, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois.

Favorite books

Definitely "What's So Amazing about Grace?" by Philip Yancey. I also really like "The Good Earth" by Pearl Buck and "The Rainmaker" by John Grisham.
