About Paul D. Gregory

lived and breathed: I have spent the greatest part of my life in Southeast Texas, attending Port Neches-Groves High School. I was employed in the corrections field for 10 years as an adult probation officer and drug treatment court program coordinator.  I completed my undergraduate education at Lamar University, MA from the University of Houston-Clear Lake, and Ph.D. in sociology from Western Michigan University. I am Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Sociology, Criminology, and Anthropology at the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater.

the fam:  I have been married since 1993. The majority of our family remains in Texas.  My wife and I have one dog (Sutton) and two cats (Niles and Fraser).

favorite hobbies: Reading and movies are one of my hobbies.  Click HERE to view my top 10 movies. Check out my goodreads page: Paul's book recommendations, liked quotes, book clubs, book trivia, book lists (currently-reading shelf)

interests: My interests include correctional treatment, especially as they relate to meditation and mindfulness. I am a certified meditation instructor and have taught meditation/mindfulness classes to prisoners. I also guide meditation at a local yoga studio. Mostly due Scott Stillman’s Wilderness, I have a renewed interest in hiking and camping. For more on this, click check out my outdoors posts.
