I am married and have six children. I taught Mathematics for a two years at Centre High School and then transitioned into a career in Information Technology. I presently an SAP Basis Administrator with Colgate-Palmolive. My interest in apogogetics began in the late 1990’s. I never had serious personal doubts about the Christian faith, but the oft given response of “just have faith” to genuine questions of others letf me feeling the Christian faith must have more to offer. I sought formal traning from Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, NC and completed my M. Min. in Apologtics from there in 2005. I now serve as a volunteer chapter director for Ratio Christi at Washburn University in Topeka, KS. I also help support the leaders at Ratio Christi at Kanssas State University.


Growing up in a Christian home was a blessing. I came to faith in Christ at an early age and was baptized when I was a freshman in high school. My faith grew immensly when I attended The Navigators at Kansas State University. My love and worship of God grew even more as I began to understand that not only was the Bible God’s revelation, but so too was logic and reason. This gave me confidence to share my faith with others as well as cementing my own faith. I’ve had the priviledge of using the passion God gave me for apologetics to help others, what a blessing.
