Hired in 1988
I was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and grew up in North Dakota and Indiana. I played baseball, basketball, and football as a child, and continue my lifelong love-hate relationship with the game of golf as an adult. I pursued drama and literature at Butler University, then continued my studies at Idaho State University.
Prior to coming to Multnomah in 1998, I taught high school English at Faith Academy in Mobile, Alabama, college English at Pillsbury College in Owatonna, Minnesota, and general studies at Trinity Christian School in American Falls, Idaho. I served as a deacon at Pocatello Bible Church for one year before moving to Washington.
My wife and I have three children, Hogan, Chloe and Ethan. I am the founder/past president of the Evergreen Curling Club and consider curling the noblest of all sports.
At Multnomah, it is a privilege for me to work alongside men and women of such wonderful Christian character. Multnomah faculty and students form a strong body of Christ in Portland, and the effect of their work is felt around the world. Teaching students who will soon be leaders is a challenge and an awesome responsibility. I thank God for placing me in this place, and I trust that my work here will be added to His glory.
