I met my wife Amy at OBU during our undergraduate days back in the 1970s. We have two grown daughters: Hannah and Ellen. I enjoy racquetball for exercise and kayaking for fun and excitement. In addition to my philosophy courses, I teach a whitewater kayaking course at OBU and occasionally get to enjoy local whitewater rivers.
