I have lived most of my life in Illinois. I went to university in Illinois where I received my undergraduate degree in Fine Art with a concentration in visual documentary. I spent two years during my undergraduate study doing visual documentary in Poland and Italy. My idea was to capture local life on camera. This I believe is what led to my interest in sociology and social psychology. My graduate studies were completed in Warsaw Poland at the Graduate School of Social Research. I was fortunate to have studied under noted scholars i.e. Anthony Giddens and Zygmunt Bauman. I was also privileged to have studied with a diverse student body; young people from all over central and eastern Europe. I participated numerous field research projects applying qualitative methods in the local communities of the Polish eastern borderland and in the Ukraine. My experience there has shaped my approach to society in that I recognize and stress the local arena of social interaction as a more valid social reality than the macro sphere of society.

My teaching method can be defined in this way; essentially, students are thinking individuals who have a field of action in which they can locate logic and principles that belong to them and to society. Pierre Bourdieu, a French professor of Sociology, observed this in social actors and wrote about it in his book "The Logic of Practice". My professional teaching experiences have been several semesters at university in the Sociology Dept. where I taught Cultural Diversity and Research Methods. I also taught English as a second language for 12 years in Poland to a variety of age groups; 13 - 50.
