interests are in the general area of developmental perspectives on religious
and faith development. In particular, the psychosocial factors contributing
to adolescent faith development, namely parents, church, youth group,
friends, etc. and the role of identity development on adolescent faith
development, especially the tasks of exploration and commitment. Finally, I
also have a passionate interest in the role of media, particularly popular
music, in the development and expression of adolescent personality,
