About MeHusband & Father. Associate Provost @seuniversity. Assistant Professor. PhD Student @azusapacific.
My life story is a mixture of my awesome family, the local church, educational institutions, and attempts to merge my left and right brains. These interactions have taught me to appreciate both the simple and complex, while seeking opportunities to challenge the status quo and serve others. I am passionate about life and wish to use every waking moment to achieve my personal mission – excellence in every aspect of life.
Beyond time with my family, which is most important, I try to balance my time between administration, instruction, and PhD studies.
- Administration 50%
- PhD, Higher Education 30%
- Instruction 20%
