Welcome

You have reached my professional and personal web server. If you are reading this information, it is because you have tried to access one of my domains (or subdomains) and the content server that is associated with the domain in question is not currently operational. This can be for a number of reasons. It is frequently the case that I am evaluating or developing various applications for use on the server. The domain that you have entered probably points to one of these less-than-stable environments. Check back later and you may find something more colorful.

Personal

I have a number of interests that frequently overlap. Foremost in this list is family. We have a young daughter that is growing up quickly. We have to occasionally remind ourselves that if we aren't paying attention, some wonderful moments may pass us by. She frequently melts my heart with her smile, sense of humor, and active imagination. She can be quite a handful... but worth every moment.

Following family is my interest in architecture. I originally hoped to become an architect after taking a number of courses in the 70's. That was not to be. Forty years later, I have the chance to design our new home. How things have changed! In addition to the traditional design aspects, I am now also looking into the practice of creating a home that is peak zero, net positive. One of my goals is to design a home where the only expense that we have are the taxes twice a year. Joyce often reminds me that upon completion I will probably have the breadth of knowledge comperable to that found in an architecture degree program. With all of the questions that I am coming up with, and the research need to answer those questions, she may be right. It is an exciting experience either way.

Secondary to those are my ongoing interests in the outdoors, photography, world travel, and exploring other cultures. I am looking forward to more trips to Europe and South America. There are many friends that we haven't seen in years and would love to visit.
