Advice for Students: Being and doing are causally related. The inner work we do brings about changes in behavior and the behaviors we engage in bring about changes in who we are. They are never divorced from each other. One does not be or become without acting in our environment.

Hobbies: Reading the psychological literature with an emphasis on new and emerging theoretical frameworks.
