Bio

Born and raised in England, I came to the USA to pursue my Masters degree on the East coast. Then, apart from a brief detour to Italy where I taught English for a while, I happily continued my westward progress in the USA, finally arriving in the bliss that is Northern California. Worked for four years on my PhD at UC Davis but I had my heart firmly set on teaching at SRJC so I headed here at the first opportunity. And here I am.

HERE ARE SOME OF MY CURRENT FAVORITE QUOTES:
 

"To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to the violence of our times."

Thomas Merton

 

"Since most of our emotional experiences are the direct result of how we interpret and personalize the events in our lives, the important factor is the skill with which we handle our own responses."

Traleg Kyabgou Rinpoche



"The main thing is, you cannot be afraid to dig way down into yourself. You've got to go way down into that dark place and come out from that."

Lucinda Williams.



"What is the source of our first suffering? It lies in the fact that we hesitated to speak. It was born in the moment when we accumulated silent things within us."

Gaston Bachelard
