As an academic and leadership coach for Gen Y, Gen Z, their parents, and their employers, I’m energized when I can help others identify their strengths and reach the next stage of their potential. Currently, I serve full-time as the Provost at my alma mater, Erskine College, in Due West, SC. I’ve also served as Director of the Scholars & Masters programs at Impact 360 Institute, an innovative organization dedicated to influencing culture by creating Christ-centered worldview and leadership opportunities. I’ve been blessed with a fantastic wife, three kids, and three dogs. Regarding my education, I hold a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Christian Education (Erskine College), a M.A. in Philosophy of Religion & Ethics (Biola University), and a Ph.D. in Church-State Studies (Baylor University).
