Learning is my passion and truly motivates me. I have been called a renaissance man by a few people. I like to call myself a walking question mark as Alan Alda does. Others have said I never finish anything! My standard answer is there is no finish. In my short life I have done so many things it is hard to remember them all, but they stay with me and make me who I am.

Currently I am trying not to be a bad citizen scientist and pursue a passion in astronomy!

A current project I am involved in is helping a P.H.D. student with data for a project researching Satellite position and orientation. I also have been tracking low earth orbiting objects.

My wife is a practicing Pharmacist.

I have two step children. One in a Doctoral program and one is finishing the International Baccalaureate program in High School.
