  • My Story

    I was given the chance to teach college classes while working on my MBA. I fell in love with teaching at the college level, so after a year of working in public accounting, I decided to pursue a Ph.D. in Accountancy at the University of Mississippi. Since completing that degree, most of my working career has been in leadership roles in Christian higher education. For the past 16 years, I’ve been very active in marketplace ministry organizations and have worked diligently to help the academic units that I have led to promote the integration of faith and learning. I am serving my second term as a board member for the Christian Business Faculty Association. I served as board chair for the CBFA in 2016-17. I have been married to my wife, Susan, for 29 years and I have twin sons (Daniel and Drew), who are 25 years old.
