Aside from my research interests, I enjoy most all of the outdoor opportunities Salt Lake City and Utah have to offer. On the weekends you will find me with my wife, Trilby, and son, Peyton, hiking, skiing, biking, climbing, fishing, or hunting somewhere in the many mountain ranges surrounding the Salt Lake area. I plan to join the faculty at Montana Tech in the fall of 2007 where I can continue all of these activities and also actively pursue my research interests. Go Utes and Diggers!
