I live and serve in Rotorua, NZ, where I live with my wife Shelley and our 3 grown-up daughters. My business, Biblical Mastery Academy serves Christians looking to go deeper in their faith through a language-first approach to Bible study. I serve as an elder at Fenton Park Bible Church.
When I’m not teaching Greek or working on my business, I enjoy getting out for a mountain bike ride.
My background and education
I grew up in a small rural New Zealand town. The Lord graciously opened my eyes to see the supremacy of Christ and granted me repentance when I was 17.
A few years later I married my wonderful wife and began a career in information technology. Throughout my career, I enjoyed a wide variety of roles at large and small companies. A number of years ago the Lord opened the opportunity for theological training in the United States.
Having completed a bachelors degree in Biblical Counselling and a Master of Divinity, I returned to New Zealand in 2015, and joined a small Bible College, where I began work on my PhD through the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. I graduated with my doctorate in Biblical Counselling with a minor in Biblical Spirituality in May, 2019.
