About Us

It has been a privilege to bring a model of service through Living Perspectives since its inception. My wife Jeanne and I enjoy sharing our experiences in business, relationship building, and faith walk with Jesus with those seeking direction or support in some phase of their life. We hope to encourage and bring hope in every situation and minister as a couple or individually as the situation requires. I graduated from WSU many years ago—Go Cougs, and picked up a mid-life Masters Degree in Psychology.

In 1982 I founded Living Perspectives, an IRS approved religious non-profit, with the intent to start a career in full time ministry. A trusted mentor, Chuck Snyder advised: “Keep a dual focus on a business career and serving the Lord in ministry.” As a result, I have been able to bring ministry into business and business into ministry. The year 1992 saw the beginning of my own consulting firm, The CareerLife Institute, serving businesses and individuals. Other experience included being an executive at CRISTA Ministries and authoring a book, How a Man Handles Conflict at Work.

Jeanne graduated from UC Santa Barbara and came to Seattle for a Master’s Degree in Speech Pathology from the UW and a career in both healthcare and education. Jeanne is a wonderful mentor and teacher of God’s principles. Our family lives in Seattle and we have 3 children and 6 grandchildren.
