I grew up in the Houston area, not far from NASA. I always loved science — but also wanted to figure out myself and my crazy family. So, I studied the science of human behavior, emotion, and cognition: Psychology. After a two-year post-doctoral fellowship, I traveled around the country and abroad for two years. Following a brief teaching stint near Philadelphia, I came to Wilson in 1998, drawn to the mission, the mountains, and the small liberal arts college. At Wilson, I have been able to pursue my interests in health, wellness, sports and psychology. I have advised the campus wellness program, conducted health psychology research, and worked with Warren Wilson athletic teams (as well as with other collegiate teams in NC). Christine and I have raised our three kids here and feel lucky to be a part of such an amazing school and community.
