I just found out that I have received tenure and a promotion to Associate Professor, so that is some good news during a tough, remote semester!

When I am not working I like spending time with my family. We like to hike, camp, and travel. I spend a lot of time doing projects around the house. 

I am originally from the Boston area and follow New England area sports teams. I mainly follow the Pats and Red Sox, but also Bruins and Celtics. Like any good New Englander, I hate the New York Yankees with every thread of my being...    I try to keep up with all my past and present institution's sports teams (GO BEARS!, GO GOPHERS!, GO TERPS!).

I like hiking, camping/backpacking, traveling and fishing when I get the chance.  When funds and time are available I try to travel as much as possible (for geological reasons or not).  During nice weather, I try to go freshwater bass fishing.

I am also big fan of many types of music (recorded and live).

Eventually I will get some photos up on this page
