During his time as a student at University of Vermont he took a keen interest in the Serial Killers.  He interviewed and met serial killers while doing work with The New York Prison (Clinton Correctional facility -Dannemora) .

Shortly after graduating he began a career as a counselor working with children and adolescents in a residential facility.

He met his wife and moved to Boston where he earned both an MS and MA in counseling and Clinical Psychology at Suffolk University. He then went on to work in a college counseling Center and begin work in a private counseling program with the hopes of teaching and rehabilitating serial sex offenders.

In 2005 he moved to Minnesota and left the therapeutic world to pursue a full-time teaching role. He entered into the Minnesota State system and worked at a variety of public and private colleges teaching psychology.  In 2015 he began teaching at NHCC and enjoys teaching a variety of courses including the following psychology courses:  general, lifespan, child, adult and aging, adjustment, psychiatric disorders, and more.
