About me
At present, I am an assistant professor of psychology at Eastern Mennonite University, and will be the President-Elect of the Virginia Association for Psychological Science (effective January 1, 2017).  Outside of academia I enjoy training for triathlons, and cheering on the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Blue Jays (extended family from Ontario) and Notre Dame football (I grew up in Northern Indiana, it's really all we had).
