Why teach at AU?

AU affords me the opportunity to educate the whole student. In class, I am able to approach learning with a Christian anthropology and epistemology which allows us to view mathematics in its rightful place.

Hobbies

I enjoy playing racquet sports, volleyball, and board games with my wife and friends.

Places you've lived

Boise, Idaho; Fargo, North Dakota; Columbia, South Carolina

What do you find most enjoyable about working at Anderson University?

Teaching at Anderson University affords me the opportunity to engage students not only mathematically but also in how mathematics relates to their worldview. Seeing students grow academically, personally, and spiritually throughout their college years is a rewarding and worthwhile experience.

How would you describe your classes to someone who has never attended one?

Each course I teach assumes a student-centered posture, regularly employing active learning in the classroom. Students not only see mathematical processes but also get to apply them in class.
