Biography

PhD Anthropology, Michigan State University
LSM (Social Science), Kent State University
BGS (Social Science), Kent State University

One who has had the great good fortune to pursue higher education "has not done this in order that he should make use of his acquirements as instruments of plunder for his own gain, and he must indeed be cankered by vice, who has not dreamed that one day he would apply his intelligence, his abilities, his knowledge to help on the enfranchisement of [others who have not]"
--Peter Kropotkin
