Background/Interesting Fact
Born in Westfield, Massachusetts. Grew up in Woonsocket, RI. Learned basic astronomy in Boy Scouts and in a
college course. Photography was my passion in high school. I had a darkroom and worked on the school newspaper.

Attended WPI and graduated in 1978 with BSEE. I’ve worked in the high-tech industry for about 37 years before my retirement in 2015. After attending Discover the Universe at CCAE taught by John Sheff and Dan Winchell something happened and I’ve been obsessed with anything astronomy ever since.
