I'm from West Finchley in London, England. Most of my relatives live near London. I enjoy visiting family and historical sites.
Most of my school years were in New Jersey where we lived after emigrating to the United States. I enjoyed the Jersey shore and fishing in the Delaware Bay.
My first two years of college were at Rowan University (formerly Glassboro) where I studied Spanish and French,
I attended Evangel College where I studied philosophy and psychology.
After graduation, I married a young woman from Kansas before going to graduate school. We enjoy many common interests in games, traveling, and long walks in new places.
I obtained a Master's Degree in Counseling at the University of Missouri.
I worked for two years as a Christian counselor. Our son was born at this time.
I returned to the University of Missouri-Columbia for a Ph.D. in psychology.
I worked as a licensed clinical psychologist in schools, hospitals, clinics, and an office practice.
In 2001, I began a career as a psychology professor at Evangel University. I mostly taught research methods and statistics to upper division undergraduate and graduate psychology students. I also taught Psychology of Religion, which was of most interest to me as a research topic.
What I enjoyed most about teaching was work with students and colleagues on research projects. We published on love, forgiveness, reconciliation, restoration, hope, attachment to God and spirituality.
In recent years I became a grandfather. My wife and I enjoy caring for our grandchildren.
I retired early from teaching to devote time to writing, speaking, and family.
