I moved to Kalamazoo, MI to work on my Ph.D. at Western Michigan University in 1980. My areas of concentration, in order of emphasis were Sociology of Education, Social Psychology and Industrial Sociology. I completed my program in 1982 and was hired by UWL.
I live, with my wife and children, on a small farm near La Crosse. My hobbies are many, but some of the current important ones are training field dogs, training mules, mule riding, bicycle touring, raising chickens, canoeing, snowshoeing, and experimentation. I am very fortunate to have found La Crosse. I believe the area has some of the most beautiful sites to be found anywhere in the world. The area is known as the Coulee Region because of the many valleys with streams running through the meadows. If you like rugged terrain and blue sky the Coulee Region is the place to be. Don’t take my word for it, make a visit.
