I am currently in my 22nd year as a profesor of chemistry at the University of Montana in Missoula. Before that I taught for six years at SUNY Fredonia in Western New York and Colorado College in Colorado Springs. I graduated from the Colorado School of Mines with a Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1983. My B.A. was in EPO Biology from CU in 1973. In between, I taught chemistry, mountaineering and rock climbing at Colorado Acemdemy in SW Denver. I met my wife Jane when I worked in Glacier National Park during the summer of 1970. She's a forest fire ecologist and works at the USFS Fire Lab here in Missoula. We have two daughters, Kinnerly (named after a peak in Glacier) who was born in 1983 and Amethyst (or Amy as she prefers) who was born in 1988. We like to hike, climb, ski, backpack and make music. Recentlly, we joined a competitive curling team.
