I work for the John A. Dutton e-Education Institute in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences. My offical title at Penn State is programmer/analyst; I spend a fair amount of time making web sites, hacking perl and php, mangling Drupal sites, and learning how to do new things to support projects in the Institute. I am married to Ann Taylor and have two stepsons, Cuyler and Josh. I'm always listening to music and for fun I play volleyball and fish. I am from Baltimore, Maryland and attended Washington and Lee Universtiy ('86, Biology) and Penn State ('91, Fish and Wildlife Science).
