I am a Professor of Mathematics at
Hope College in Holland,
Michigan. I live in Holland with my wife, Michelle and
sons Ryan (21) and Jared (17).
In Spring 2018, Ryan is a junior at Hope College, while Jared is a junior at Zeeland West High School.
- Games of all sorts -- I generally prefer modern German-style games, but I
enjoy lots of other things as well. Some of my current favorites are:
- Photography -- See some of my photos.
- Music -- Singing, writing, and playing keyboards.
I play keyboard in the band at the church I attend,
Harvest Bible Chapel--West Olive.
I've written several songs in the last few years. I'm in the process
of recording them into a (very amateur) CD project in my basement.
I do some sequencing and music-related computer programming.
Here is my current basement setup, including a Yahama digital piano, a Roland RS-50
synth, a small mixer, and a laptop PC that I use for MIDI sequencing:
