I was born and raised in Chicago where I attended school and worked until my marriage in 1988. My wife, Monica, and I then moved to Wisconsin and settled in Milwaukee, where I served for many years at Wisconsin Lutheran College and where we together worked to develop a voucher school in the central city. Along the way, I founded and managed a youth evangelism program called Wandani that served boys surrounded by Milwaukee's gang culture.

My interests include film and literature, house renovation, and hockey. We have five children, three who are currently Regent students, an older daughter who teaches middle-school music in Boston, and a younger son in high school. We live in an old house in Portsmouth in the shadow of the naval hospital to the east, and the original CBN radio tower to the west.
