I currently live in Budapest, Hungary with my wife Joyce and together we provide educational assessments to school students in Southeast Asia. Previously, I worked as a School Psychologist in a public High School with experience as a school district special education administrator. I received my Bachelors of Science degree from Grace College (Winona Lake, IN) in Behavioral Studies and a minor in Biblical studies in 1981. I attended Talbot Seminary and then Philadelphia College of Bible (now called Cairn University) with Joyce where we received our Masters degree in Christian Counseling together. I also attended Azusa Pacific University completing two thirds of my Doctorate in Psychology, but made a course change to Educational Psychology and never returned to the clinical program. It is my desire to use my experience and training in the area of educational psychology internationally to help families who have children that struggle to learn.

I have been married to Joyce for over 35 years, we have two adult children and one grandson. We currently reside in Budapest, Hungary.

It is my desire to help global worker’s families by helping identify learning difficulties that their children may have. When a child has a learning problem parents are touched deeply and motivated to help them.

I believe that God has designed each of us with unique gifts that sometimes include what our culture would call a “disability”. However, if we can see a child’s uniqueness for what it has to offer in glorifying God then we may look at learning disabilities very differently. I love to see God’s design in action, I want to see Christ glorified in the way He has created them, I long to see God work. There is nothing more exciting than to see the incredible way in which Christ accomplishes His plan. I want to use my gift with children to be a part of this work.

My Job description

My activities are three fold. First I conduct psycho-educational assessments for children with suspected learning problems that are in a home school environment or in other near-by schools in Budapest, Hungary. Learning disabilities typically reach over 10% of all children.

Second, I travel other international schools in Europe and Asia where an educational psychologist is not available. Joyce and I often make these trips together to serve the school and children more effectively since we are both have credentials in School Psychology from California, USA.

Third, I assist various agencies in Europe and Asia during their conferences with assessment as well as parent and teacher training.
