I worked as an aquatic biologist for the US Army R&D Center in Vicksburg, Mississippi for most of my career. After retiring, I taught in the Biology Department for five years at Thomas University, Thomasville, Georgia.
In 2019, I started volunteering at several prisons in the Tallahassee area. I started out sponsoring gavel clubs; now I also teach creative writing. Check out my webpage on volunteering in prisons.
I also design and construct new and restore antique windows. See some of my projects in 'Amberstar Glass.' I also like to read, traipse through the woods, and tend my garden.
I was born in Michigan, grew up in Pittsburgh, and have lived in Kentucky, Indiana, and Mississippi. From 2007 to 2019, my wife Kathryn and I summered in Maine and spent winters in Tallahassee. We now live full-time in Florida.
