I teach at Fresno Pacific University because I believe in the Fresno Pacific Idea. I believe that we as an institution are called to be a prophetic Christian liberal arts school in the Anabaptist/ Mennonite tradition. I have a passion to help students catch a vision for serving in God's Kingdom and to better understand God's world. I enjoy exploring the world and interacting with other cultures, learning from and appreciating the variety of experiences and ideas around us, and I wish to share this enjoyment with others.
