EducationPhD, MS in Aerospace Engineering, BS in Electrical Engineering from the University at Buffalo. NASA GSRP Fellowship (NASA Goddard Space Flight Center).
ExperienceI have extensive teaching, training, tutoring and coaching experience. I am currently a teacher of physics at Nichols School. I have also been a Professor of Physics at Niagara University and a Teaching Assistant and Research Associate in Aerospace Engineering at the University at Buffalo. I am inspired by Richard Feynman (Caltech), and Carl Sagan (Cornell). I believe in Plutarch's adage, "The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be lighted," a phrase which I'm told Apollo astronauts Dave Scott and Alan Bean were also fond of!
HobbiesI am interested in aviation (I hold an FAA Private Pilot license) and I enjoy aviation and space-program history. I play tennis, I water-ski, downhill-ski, and I play and coach ice hockey. I also play trumpet, and I enjoy jazz, classical music, and drum & bugle corps. I've traveled extensively, especially in Europe, and I speak some French. I am fascinated by Roman and Egyptian history. I love Buffalo history, planning and architecture (I give tours!) and I'm also a community activist in Buffalo.
