I was born in 1952 in a small town called Badhoevedorp, near Amsterdam in the
Netherlands. I came to the US in 1956 with my parents and
brother, and grew up mostly on Long Island. I got my BA from Penn
State, and my MS and PhD from Oklahoma State, all in Psychology.
In 1972, I married Judy Kovarik, the girl next door back in Bay Shore, NY. Judy and I have three wonderful daughters - Jenny, Merry, and Katey. Jenny and Staks have a boy named Orion and a girl named Lyra, and Katey and Ashley have a boy named Julian. Judy and I live contentedly in the beautiful Cumberland Valley of Pennsylvania.
