I live in Lauderdale County, Alabama, near Lexington, on 75 acres of beautiful pastures and woodland. I received my Master's in sociology from Memphis State University and my PhD from the University of Missouri,Columbia. I have academic minors in psychology and political science.

The things I studied in my formal academic career are a reflection of that desire and my present, more expanded pursuit of spiritual knowledge is, after all, not a great departure from that underlying intent.
