During my undergrad studies, I met my college sweetheart, Ann, a fellow student from the Twin Cities (I was living in Southern California at the time). Ann and I married in June 2006, days after we finished classes. Between us, we have three children: Brian, Amanda, and Samantha.

I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior when Ann and I got engaged in 2005. We attend Bethel’s Rock Church in Richfield, MN.

When I’m not working (when is that?), I enjoy music. I play bass in our church praise team and guitar in our praise team at work. I write Christian rock songs, and I’ve played classic rock and country in various bands. I also like history and trivia and was a four-time champion on the TV game show “Jeopardy” in 2000.

I pray you enjoy A Christian’s Guide to Marketing. We’re all here to learn together!
