I am the author of the novel “Standing Stone”, a memoir "An American in Dorset" and more recently an anthology of short stories, "In All The Wrong Places". I have also written numerous articles on history, education and science that have been published both regionally and nationally. My works have appeared in Adirondack Life, Adirondac, The Science Teacher, Science Digest, Pennsylvania Naturalist and other periodicals.
I am a native of Owego, New York and have lived in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Louisiana and New York City. For five summers I worked above, on and inside various Alaskan glaciers on the Juneau Icefield in association with the Juneau Icefield Research Program and the USGS. I have traveled widely in the U.S., Canada, China, Russia and Europe. I was an exchange teacher to England for a year in the 1980's. This experience was the basis of my memoir, "An American in Dorset".
A retired science teacher, I live in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State with my wife, Mariam. My leisure interests include hiking, mountaineering, kayaking, photography, astronomy, watercolor painting and keeping my passport up to date.
