Salem, Oregon

"Observing Kent teach is like watching an intersection where Paul and Calvin meet Dwight Schrute and Bono."

I have been teaching theology-type classes at Corban University since 2002. (I came to Salem after getting my PhD in theology from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth, TX. Yes the actual diploma is bigger than diplomas from other states.)

I enjoy following technology trends (especially everything Apple). I love finding meaning in media. Traveling with my wife is definitely one of the greatest joys in life.

I married my best friend, Terri, in 1983 and we have two awesome kids (Scott and Hannah), and two of the most outstanding grandsons (Harrison and Quillan) in the universe.
