Most of my career has been spent working with troubled youth. I have undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Philosophy, and a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology. Much of my work has been working in juvenile corrections with at-risk youth and their families. I've worked in both juvenile detention and probation, both as in direct care and as a family therapist for high-risk youth and their families. Currently I provide training for detention center staff on topics such as cognitive-behavioral interventions, development, team-building, and group facilitation. Being a well-rounded individual is important, and for me the means experiencing as much of the world as possible. I try to travel and learn as much as I can (which probably explains why I like TED so much). My wife is a sommelier...we do our best to travel to wine regions whenever we can. We have a fantasy of opening a wine shop together someday. My hobbies are very important to me. They include cycling, exercising, poker, reading, hiking, and traveling.
