My first teaching experience was in Nepal, at Godavari School, about eight miles outside of Kathmandu. After spending two years teaching geography there, I moved to Chicago, and taught sociology at Loyola of Chicago. Next, I moved to Meadville, where I taught sociology and anthropology, and served as the chair of the sociology and anthropology department. Finally, I came to Erie, and Gannon, where I have been teaching sociology and anthropology for over a decade. I have always loved sports, both as participant and spectator, and love to draw and paint. At Gannon, my interest in anthropology led me to go with Professor Suzanne Richard on two archaeological digs, as the dig artist. These expeditions are to Jordan, to Dr. Richard's dig at Khirbat Iskander.
