During 1980, my family lived in Berlin, Germany for 6
months and I attended the John

graduated from high school in 1989 and went to Carleton
College. I majored in Psychology and got
a concentration in Natural
History. Upon graduation, I went to work for McMaster-Carr
Supply Company in Elmhurst, Illinois,
doing dreadfully dull work for which I was generously compensated. In
July 1995 I left McMaster-Carr to work as a research assistant to Max Bazerman in the Organization
Behavior Department at
Graduate School of Management at Northwestern
University in Evanston, Illinois. There
I did fascinating work for which I was paid a pittance. It was much
better. In the Fall of 1996
I started in the Ph.D. program in Organization Behavior at Kellogg.

first three months of 2003 and again for the first three months of
2007. In 2005, my second son Anderson was
born. I got tenure at CMU in 2008. In the 2008-2009 academic
