Hi, my name is Stephen and I am different things to different people.

Although I grew up in the States, I live in Birmingham, UK with my partner, and three daughters. I teach full time at Newman University.

In my free time, I enjoy long-distance running and the Internet.

My own academic writing might give some insight into the epistemologies and heuristics that inform my writing. Additionally, there are a few required texts which you're expected to read in your own time:
