  • Lab Technician, Electrical Engineering

  • Adjunct Assistant Professor of Communication

  • Technical Writer



I am first and foremost a servant of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I have been a technician, an engineer, a teacher, a writer, an editor, a public speaker, and a student during my lifetime.  I have taught Children's Church and witnessed Biker Gangs with puppets and balloon animals.  So, keep in mind that our Lord Jesus can use any talent you have to witness to others, even talents you don't realize you have.

My first love is writing and speaking; therefore, I went back to school at the age of 49 to get my BS in Technical Writing from Purdue University and my MA in Communication and Leadership from Gonzaga University. I have worked here at LeTourneau University for ten years. For the last six years, I have taught Introduction to Speech Communication COMM1113. I am a professional engineering technician, teacher, writer, and editor. Working here has been an amazing blessing from God. The people here teach you to grow academically, but they also mentor you to grow spiritually.

I have been married to my wife for 26 years, and she is one of the greatest blessings that the Lord has ever bestowed upon me. She is the one that keeps me grounded and supports me no matter what.

I look forward to getting to know you and discovering together what our Lord has in store for you.
