A Calvinist, I was predestined to marry Telma and have three made-in-USA kids. I love interacting with folks of all faiths and walks of life. Paul's letter to the Romans is my favorite book of the Bible. I enjoy outdoor activities including soccer, volleyball, biking, and jogging. I dislike cold winter, coffee, and sea food (ask my PSYC121 students why!).
