Before becoming a psychologist, he was a vice-president of software development for a large insurance company, and later a consultant to a multi-employer pension plan. He has separate undergraduate degrees in mathematics and English literature, as well as an M.A. in counseling psychology, and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology.
