- have an effect on; make a difference to
- touch the feelings of someone; move emotionally
AffectiveLiving is an outlet for my life’s thesis:
Use scientific research and education to positively affect individuals’ perspectives, passions, and perseverance.
My work is rooted in the importance of social emotional learning, empathy, and human thriving. Throughout my decade of experience as a high school teacher, educational trainer, writer, and speaker, I’ve always been committed to creating authentic dialogue, stirring thoughts, and providing a liaison between psychological research and teaching.

Or, if you just want to grab a beer or a coffee and talk life, learning, and thriving, look me up the next time you’re near Kalamazoo (yep, it’s a real place).
I’d love to hear from you directly. Drop me a line!
