About

Since before I had the words to describe it, I have been fascinated by the complexity and power of the human mind. As a boy I wanted to know what motivates people to behave the way they do. I often felt resigned to this being unknowable. With time, I found my way to a field that has allowed me to engage this curiosity.

Before coming to the Bay Area, I lived in Australia, the Midwest and grew up in the UK. I have traveled extensively around Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia. The people I work with have various racial, religious and cultural backgrounds. I welcome people of all orientations LGBTQ and straight.
