I grew up in small towns and have a special affection for southern Indiana after my time in Bloomington. I love cycling and the biggest thing I miss about California is the hills and the views. You can't take in the view from a 2000ft. hill in a state that doesn't go that high above sea level.
I'm a developmental and learning scientist, so the focus of my work is research and teaching. The focus of my research is how to help people, especially young adults, be more intentional and effective in living a healthy and productive life. The best thing about my work is that I get to hear so many people's stories and to share them in ways that can help others.
