I began teaching at Covenant in 2014. To be honest, the job kind of fell into my lap. Teaching wasn’t even on my radar, as I was at that time working in the Oil & Gas field while dabbling with some sports writing. Once I got to Covenant, though, I realized what it was like to be fulfilled in my work—something I had never experienced before. What I have perhaps found the most fulfilling are the relationships forged with the students; being able to get to know them on a personal level, and then guide them through all sorts of new concepts and modes of thought has been an absolute blast. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

When I’m not teaching, you can find me at home with my wife, Mary, and our two cats, Pocket and Tumnus, typically watching whatever big sporting event is on that evening.
