"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."   Jeremiah 29:11

I attended LC until 2001 before moving to California. I graduated from Ontario Christian High School in 2004. I earned my History Education Degree from Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, Illinois in 2009. In 2014, I earned my Masters of Science Degree in Recreation and Sports Sciences from Ohio University. Before coming to Lynden Christian, I taught at Hanford Christian School in Hanford, California for 4 years. I have been teaching US History, Bible and Tech at Lynden Christian Middle School since 2013.

I have a passion for teaching kids. I love to see them learn and work with each other. I love sharing the Word of God through stories in the Bible and throughout History, which his HIS story.

My wife Tana and I have two boys, Bekkem and Kasen, and one daughter, Aviley. When I am not teaching or coaching, I love spending time in the Word, traveling the world through missions, playing soccer, paddle boarding, spending time with my family and friends.
