I was born to missionaries in Jos, Nigeria and from there moved to several other countries. Eventually I wound up attending Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI where I majored in English. From there I headed off to Lithuania where I worked at a Christian university and recruited students from the former Soviet Union; mainly Ukraine, Belarus, and Moldova. That is where I met my wife who is from Ukraine (we worked together in the admissions office). From there we ventured off for a year to work at an international school in China. Eventually we ended up Grand Rapids, MI where I worked for an international NGO, World Renew, for 5 years in their development office. I am an advocate of Christians faithfully and thoughtfully engaging in the world and where the opportunity exists, to lead. And of course, I love to travel.
