I am a follower of Christ, a spouse/father/grandfather, and a life-long CRC member. Raised in Ontario, I also have lived in Alberta, Michigan, and Iowa. I have a PhD in Canadian history, taught and served in administration at Dordt College for 20 years, and was President of Redeemer University College from 2010 to 2016.

Areas of special interest are History of Canada, Aboriginal peoples, the Muslim world, the Church, and all things Reformed; social justice and public policy; education and innovation; and organizational development.
