Math 231-232 Book About Me

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:
