Originally From: Avon Lake, OH
Personal Information: I'm married to Virginia and have two adult children. All of us are graduates of Evangel! I came to Evangel from my home state of Ohio and a position with a real estate development company as Vice President and legal counsel to fill in for a Professor who was on sabbatical. Here I am twenty years later continuing to help prepare students for careers in the legal field. I also am involved in Republican politics in the area, starting a group called NEXGen which promotes the traditional values of the republican party and seeks to link the older generation to the next generation of republicans. I also have a conflict management consulting group that helps churches, not for profits and businesses resolve conflict before going to court.
