Doug joined the Rockpoint Staff in 2012. Although not a native Minnesotan, he did steal his native Minnesotan wife, Angie, away to his Springfield, Illinois home for 9 years before coming back to Minnesota.
After attending Illinois Wesleyan University, Doug worked in both church and para-church ministries for over twenty years including the Minnesota based CTI Music Ministries based in Willmar, which he led several teams across the globe playing concerts in connection with Youth for Christ International.
Doug and his wife Angie are advocates for both local and international adoption. They have two young children, Jaedon and Etta who joined their family through adoption. Doug is the only member in his family that is not adopted.
