Comments

It's great to be back in California again, especially Northern CA. I left Piedmont in the middle of the 8th grade when my family moved to NY. I'm an astronomer specializing in planetary atmospheres and started my career at NASA's JPL in Pasadena. I was deeply involved in NASA's robotic exploration program (at two national laboratories and NASA HQ). I retired in 2014 from the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security in Washington, D.C., and I am now doing consulting work based at my home office in El Dorado Hills, CA.

School Story

BS in Physics from Oberlin College
