Brief Biography

I received my BS from Centre College (Danville, Ky) in 1989, my Master of Arts from the University of Louisville (Louisville, Ky) in 1993, and my Ph.D. from the University of Louisville in 1997. My Dissertation was on "Phenomenological Cue Effects on the Class II Oblique Effect". I have been teaching classes at the University level since 1993. I currently have no ongoing research.

My personal interests include cycling, soccer, gaming, pocket billiards, collecting comic books, and others.
