I am from Reno, Nevada, USA. I work as a scientific research professor in atmospheric sciences. I am married with a 24 year old step-son who is a musician. I am also a musician and have played guitar for over 40 years. I like to snow ski during the winter, exercise, and eat right. I have traveled in Europe, South America, Africa, and Antarctica. I like museums, history, and relics as much as anyone but for vacation, I prefer to blend in with the locals and relax, especially in Europe.
