I was born in Winchester Kansas, but raised for most of my life in Topeka Kansas. I am now living in Lawrence and loving every moment. I volunteer at The Sexual Trauma & Abuse Care Center (formerly Gadugi Safe Center) as a Community Action Team member; I currently work part-time as a Landscape Supervisor for Low Maintenance Landscape, Inc. and have worked for the company for over 10 years.
When I enjoy spare time, I use it to read, write poetry, and listen to music. I am a non-traditional student in that I am a father of three, an orphan, and I am in my thirties. After I earn my Bachelor of General Studies in Psychology as well as Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, I plan to earn a PhD in Psychology (Hopefully at KU!).
