Although born in New Jersey, my family moved to Boise in 1972. At that time I had aspirations of attending Boise State University (which I did) and teaching Philosophy at Boise State (which I am doing). I got my undergraduate degree from Boise State (Go Broncos!) in 1974, and my M.A. in 1988 from Nebraska (Go Big Red!). My passions are Philosophy, digital interpretive photography (I’m pretty good), the Meridian Humane Society animal rescue, and my ‘own’ pets.
