Though I am very passionate about teaching and research, I am a believer in a healthy work-life balance. When I am not in the classroom or working on projects, I enjoy spending time with my wife Tara and our new baby boy Mac. I also enjoy playing fetch with our three yorkies (Millie, Tyke, and Sully), and playing games of strategy such as poker and chess. I am also very interested in general aviation.
