Born and raised in South Carolina (you know you're from SC here), youngest of 3 children.  Westernmost member of the clan.  Father was a high school football coach and athletic director, mother was a secretary and taught clerical skills.  Older of two elder brothers is a retired Air Force officer, currently living in IN.  Other brother is a retired high school English teacher, living in NC.  Best friend (retired high school teacher/principal) lives in Columbia, SC.

I've been an academic gypsy, so I've lived in both Carolinas, Georgia, Colorado, Arizona, South Dakota, and Texas.  I've lived in Lubbock and been on the faculty of TTU since 2000.  I've traveled throughout the U.S. and have also been to Canada, Australia, England, Scotland, The Netherlands, France, Mexico, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, and Kenya. You can check out my Flickr albums of photos from Kenya here (2023); Panama here (2022) and here (2021); and from Costa Rica here (2018), here (2017), and here (2015).
