I grew up in Denver, Colorado and got a B.S degree in Aerospace Engineering from the
University of Colorado (Go Buffs!). I have been working at JPL since 1986 when I got out
of school. I went to night school while working at JPL and got a M.S. degree in Engineering
from the University of Southern California.
I am 32 years old and live in La Crescenta California, which is about 10 miles away
from Pasadena. Since I'm from Colorado, I'm into skiing. There is nothing like bouncing
down a mogul field with a foot of fresh Colorado powder. Since I live in Southern California,
I also play a lot of volleyball (both beach and indoor). I live by myself in a small house
where I have done several home improvement projects. The last one was remodeling a bathroom,
which would have been a lot easier if it wasn't the only one in the whole house.
