About Me: 

I moved to Chicago from Grand Rapids 10 years ago for graduate school.  During those years, I married my wonderful wife Rebecca, earned two degrees in Social Psychology, and have lived at three addresses.  I am an elder at Ebenezer CRC in Berwyn, an office about which I am still learning.


I have a love to learn about the world in which we live.  My wife and I both love to travel and eat a wide variety of  cuisines.

I love baseball.  Many will say that it is boring and slow-paced, but there is something I truly enjoy about the movement of the game.

I always love to hear the stories of missionaries in our congregation.  Their passion for the Lord and their experience of the world is enriching.
