Education:
Received Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Ohio University in 1979 after completing an internship at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic (Department of Psychiatry) at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
Family:
My wife, Candy; three daughters, Meghan, Kelly and Holly; one son, Dodge; and two young granddaughters, Harper and Rhiley.
Favorite quote:
From my now deceased father: “Anything worth doing is worth doing well.”
Activities you enjoy outside of work:
Several. Dining out and going to movies, plays, or concerts. We’ve already been to see Sheryl Crow at Mud Island. Anything outside and exercising. Before hip surgery I enjoyed running, but now I am confined to walking.
Who has had the greatest influence on you?
I need to mention two. First would be my father, from whom I received my strong work ethic. Second would be professor Kay Deaux, who helped me find my way in psychology.
Why did you pursue a career in psychology?
Like many undergraduates, I struggled to find my niche. I took a class with professor Kay Deaux, a well-known social psychologist, and afterwards she invited me to work in her laboratory.
In seconds, I was hooked on psychology. I needed only to find the right area of specialization, which for me was clinical psychology.
What attracted you to the University of Memphis?
Many things. The quality of the faculty, students and staff. The exciting projects being pursued. The many possibilities to collaborate with folks on and off campus. The opportunity to help make a very strong program even more so.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments?
Contributing to the knowledge base of psychology and the professional development of students and more junior colleagues.

Working with students and seeing their eyes light up when they get excited by psychology.
