I like to laugh. I like witty people. I also write quite a bit about qualitative research, resilience, the meanings of violence, and US politics. Once in a while, I write something funny. I'm horse crazy and have two of my own--Padron's Elegante and Finn MacCool, who are mother and son. I have several videos on youtube about them. I've spent quite a bit of time in Europe. Ireland and Belgium have been second homes. I once thought I would live in Oxford, which is a wonderful place.
I'm a professor at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, USA, and enjoy, besides horses, photography, gardening, cooking, the arts, nature, and boating.
