      Academic Interests
      My areas of professional academic interest center around two major areas. One area involves the biomechanical analysis of running gait. My second area of interest is in osteopathic manual medicine and its role in the treatment of athletic injuries. My research interests however, have been, and will continue to be diverse. I truly enjoy the development of research problems and the overall research process.

      Personal
      Bethann and I, married since 1991, have three incredible children -- Jonah (1995), Evan (1998) and Genevieve (2000). Bethann is a career licensed Social Worker who continues to serve those in need. She provides unyielding support of my professional aspirations, as well as my personal interest in running. We currently reside in Skokie, but can be found most holiday and summer weekends with grandparents and extended family on the other side of Lake Michigan.
