I have been involved in educational ministry since 1987, and I have been leading Christian schools since 1993. I was the principal at Novi Christian Academy, Novi, Michigan from 1997-2013 and was the founding campus director (2013) at Brightmont Academy, Northville, Michigan. More recently, I was chief academic officer, principal, and interim head of school at Houghton Academy, Houghton, New York from 2013-17. I have taught as an adjunct professor at William Tyndale College and Central Bible College in Christian studies and humanities and have presented workshops for educators at various teacher conferences throughout Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.
I believe the goal of education and learning is conformity into the Image of Christ and am dedicated to historical, evangelical Christianity within the charismatic and sacramental traditions.

Favorite Bible Verse: “In Him we live, and move, and have our being.” Acts 17:28
Music is a unique avenue for teaching excellence in life, collaboration with others, ministry to the disenfranchised, and witnessing to our community and beyond. Children have a powerful opportunity to change their world through their music making.
