Kevin E. Gruenfeld's Home Page

ASYLUM GRANTED HERE (visitors welcome)
Click here for my "Kev's Life Update (Get a KLU)" autobiography.
Greetings! You have found my web page! I am the first TSC (now TCNJ) alumni to have a home page!

After graduating Jackson Memorial High School (Jackson, NJ) where I was heavily involved in marching band, I earned my Bachelor's Degree in at The College of New Jersey in psychology, with a minor in music. I started a Ph.D. program in clinical psychology at Northern Illinois University in De Kalb, near Chicago and earned my M.A., but now am on the IT team at Philabundance You may also view my old CV - Curriculum Vitae (Resume) of Kevin E. Gruenfeld (the formatting of html may make it look a little different than normal). I currently live in the center of the historic city of Philadelphia.

Blue Ribbon Free Speech Online

"That's the sort of thing I want you to understand. To sell your soul is the easiest thing in the world. That's what everybody does every hour of his life. If I asked you to keep your soul-- would you understand why that's much harder." (Alissa Rosenbaum (Ayn Rand))

"Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise." (Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll))

"... don't criticize what you can't understand." (Robert Zimmerman (Bob Dylan))
