I am originally from the crossroads town of Lake City, Florida, where I spent my entire childhood and adolescence. I received my B.A. in sociology and Theology from the University of Notre Dame (1990), my M.A. in sociology from the University of Florida (1993), and my Ph.D. in sociology, specializing in social psychology, from Indiana University (1998). I spent a year as a postdoctoral researcher at Indiana University prior to taking my first academic appointment in 1999 at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama. I began my current academic appointment at SJSU in the 2005 Fall Semester.
