Background

I grew up in Hillsboro, Kansas. In 2006 I moved to Three Hills to begin attending Prairie College. Many years, a wife, and three kids later, I am still here! I work as the Director of Student Development (DSD) and spend most of my days in the men’s dorm (that is where you can find my office). The greatest part about my job is being able to walk alongside students and watch the joy and excitement grow in them as they embrace the Christian life and grow in their knowledge of God. I am honoured to work with students as they navigate both the ups and downs of college life, and I strive to be available to them as much as possible. 

Some of my favourite things to do are playing Lego with my kids, jumping on our trampoline, or sitting in my favourite chair with a good book. In the summers, hiking and camping with the family is a must. During the school year I love to get out and play basketball with the college students.
