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.
I'm passionate about trying new things and having new experiences. Things like traveling, learning, and exercise are important to me. I prefer dynamic and upbeat environments.
