A Brief Bio of Michael Phelps, Ph.D.

I left a dysfunctional family and began globe-trotting to gain an "experiential education,” and in that process graduated after three tours from the University of South Viet Nam.

As part of my education I lived in:


  • Sydney Australia,

  • Penang, Malaysia,

  • Tokyo, Japan,

  • Hong Kong, China,

  • Danang, Viet Nam,

  • Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, and


an extended stay on a creek bank identified by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on state map as “Copper- Head ridge”, along the Ohio River near Vevay, Indiana, with another Vet before integrating back into society and settling down.  I understand PTSD.
