About Me

I came to Houghton in 2013 with 18 years of experience teaching and coaching adolescent students. After completing my graduate studies in 2007, I also taught methods courses at Aurora University and Trinity Christian College. If I’m not in class or out visiting a student teacher, my office door is always open and people are welcome to stop by to chat about class, a practicum experience, or anything else.

As a graduate of a small, Christian, liberal arts college, I believe Houghton can truly be a life-forming experience. I can attribute much of the development of my personality, character, and faith to my undergraduate experience and I hope others’ time at Houghton will equally impact their lives.

I have a fabulous wife and daughter, and we enjoy just about any outdoor recreational activity. We especially appreciate traveling to the Rocky Mountains to hike, bike, kayak, or simply enjoy God’s creation.
