I began working full-time for Wayland Baptist University in July 1995 as an Assistant Professor at the Hawaii Campus. My teaching field is religion. I have earned five academic degrees (3 in French Language and Literature, 2 in Biblical Studies). The furthest east I have lived is France; the furthest west is Hawaii. I have done mission projects in Belgium, Kenya, Hong Kong, Australia, and Fiji. Although I enjoy playing guitar and handbells, doing drama, gardening, and cooking, my work has been my most constant source of acomplishment. Of course, I have had a lot of jobs: French teacher, English teacher, cabinetmaker, general repairman, student minister, pastor, seminary adjunct, and church planter prior to my Wayland experiences. But raising two sons to manhood and maintaining a 46-year marriage is, I think, my best work. Because I wanted to put my syllabi online, I audited a WBU course in HTML at the Hawaii campus. That started the ball rolling, and, after being the University's Webmaster for three years, I was asked to coordinate the Virtual Campus. After four years as the VC Director, I became Wayland's first full-time, online religion professor. In 2011 I was asked to direct Wayland's Hawaii Campus and did so until 2015 when I retired from full-time work. Now I teach as an adjunct for Wayland, Gateway Seminary (formerly Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary), and UMHB.
