Married to Karen; she is employed here in Schenectady at Union College as the Administrative Assistant to Academic Affairs; I as a sales engineer for a small company which represents various manufacturers of measurement and control instrumentation. I have lived in Eastern NYS all my life; am an avid road biker, runner, and swimmer, active hiker and photographer. Love to spend time outdoors, back country exploring, enjoying a small cozy campfire, hot tea from a thermos in a snowy forest. When indoors, my time is normally spent reading, listening to my music collection, practicing yoga; or visiting with good friends, meeting at the local coffee shop, going out to lunch or breakfast with family or friends. Very seldom watch any TV, enjoy listening to NPR, love my local station, WAMC, of which I am a longstanding member. Not so much now, but in the past have done much carpentry, masonry, tile, and landscaping work, all on my own homes. Karen and I have three children, two daughters, both graduates of Union College (one with her Masters) who are both currently teaching, and one son who is working in San Francisco as a web designer.
