Many years of experience with research, research administration, budgets and proposals.

What I do when I am not at Sea Grant

I spend most of my down time with my two sons Bobby and Cal. In the winter we enjoy skiing, skijoring, and curling. In the summer, if we are not at the baseball fields you can find us floating in our kayaks.
