I have been at Simpson for 26 years!  I have served as Physical Education Department Chair for 14 years, Social Sciences Division Chair for one term, Assistant Athletic Director for 6 years and also work as the Athletic Department’s NCAA Compliance Coordinator, which I have done for 6 years.  I also worked as the Men’s Basketball assistant coach from 1990 to 1996 and then was the women’s and men’s Tennis Coach for 12 years!  My wife, Susan, and I are from Fort Madison, Iowa and have two grown children, Laura, who is mother to my 10 year old grandson, Zach, and Bryan is our son.  We have two awesome cocker spaniels, Annie and Charlie and live in Indianola! The best things about Simpson is our great students—-watching our athletic teams win games and watching the first year students grow up to be seniors and productive members of their communities!
