I became a Christian at the age of 16, leaving behind my unbelief and anger at God. My first college degree was in chemistry with educational licensure, but I only taught for one year before moving into the industry. I have worked for Fortune 100 companies and owned several small businesses. After being married for about 10 years and having two children I decided to pursue a master’s and then a doctoral degree for the purpose of becoming a college professor. I enjoy adventurous activities like hiking/camping, surfing, and wakeboarding.

During my time at Bryan I have seen Christians become stronger in their faith, atheists hear and accept the Gospel and transform their lives, young men and women grow to maturity ready for a career and marriage.  My own children now attend Bryan and their experience as been even better than I could hope.
