I have the privilege to work with students in a variety of ways at Western.  I direct the two curricular choirs, Cantus and Concert Choir, and the Chamber Singers.  I teach a New Testament Bible class to the sophomores and help plan chapel activities at Western.  I also enjoy teaching private voice lessons, working with All-State and solo and ensemble students, and helping with the musicals at Western.

I grew up in Hull and attended Hull Christian and Western Christian.  It was always my dream to come back to Western to teach vocal music. I was very active in music when I was a student at Western and give credit to my teachers for their encouragement and enthusiasm.  I love the great choral music tradition at Western Christian!  It is my hope that my students have great experiences in music and that they will want to continue to use their gifts to praise God their whole lives!

After graduating from Dordt College I taught music and Spanish in southwest Minnesota for seven years.  Later I received a Masters of Music in vocal performance from USD.  

My wife, Darla and I have been married for 27 years.  Darla is a sales agent for Vision Realty in Sioux Center and a hairstylist.  God has blessed us with four children and a daughter-in-law.  Our son Drake and his wife Callie live in Altoona.  Dylan and DaNae are both attending Dordt College, and Dason will be in the seventh grade at Hull Christian.

Our family attends the First Christian Reformed Church in Hull.  We enjoy being active and serving in our church in a variety of ways. 

Outside of school we enjoy spending time at Okoboji.  My wife and I love to entertain. I enjoy walking, cooking, reading, gardening, singing in the Sioux County Oratorio Chorus, and a good cup of coffee with friends.
