I have been in the US for over 20 years having moved over here from England to be with my wife. We met online way before it was normal and we now live in the UP of Michigan with our two children (a daughter who attends NMU, and a son in high school), two dogs, two cats, a hedgehog, and a load of fish. I love both sports, soccer and hockey. I support Stevenage FC, Minnesota Wild and, of course, NMU Wildcats. I've been known to dabble with the guitar and bass, and can often be found in my office listening to the Manic Street Preachers, Garbage, Britpop, or sometimes punk when the mood takes me.
After what was a less than stellar high school experience in which I scraped over the line, I started my path into further education late, and once I started I didn't stop. I'm excited to now be able to help others along their journey. I have earned a Ph.D. in Psychology with an Emphasis in Performance Psychology and my interests in psychology are in social identity, development, and performance psychology. I have an extremely irrational distaste for social mehdia - I'm working on it.
