Teaching Philosophy

In my role as an educator, I serve my students by rousing their interest in the topics we explore together. I enjoy teaching the theoretical concepts alongside practical applications based on real life examples and case studies from the business world. In this age of education based on the pursuit of individual desires only, it is exciting to become part of an Institution that still places God at the center of all things.


I was born in small town Ontario and lived there until leaving for University. I met my wife while attending Wilfrid Laurier for my Economics degree. Our two grown children were twenty-four and twenty when God called us to move to Saskatchewan and serve at Briercrest. I am an avid hockey player, and follower. I love all types of technology and have been known to relax with a good book or a great video game!

God has used Briercrest to catalyze His redemptive work within me and I'm simply awestruck when I compare the past and present state of my heart. It's truly a divine miracle that my soul is now able to enjoy such freedom, joy, love, and grace.
