Photo Personal Information (Miscellaneous)

  • Here is my personal blog (well, everyone else seems to have one now).
  • I have pages on some social media sites: Google+, facebook, LinkedIn, twitter.
  • I repeat this zen saying to myself every morning.
  • When I start to lose my way in life I turn to Hub.
  • When I begin feeling disorganized I turn to Henry.
  • When I need research advice I turn to Albert.
  • When I get confused about what is going on politically I turn to Noam.
  • Here are some other notable quotes.
  • I can apparently trace my academic lineage back fifteen generations to Isaac Newton.
  • My Erdös number is currently 3 by several paths.
  • I have supervised 16 PhD students as of August 2016; we fit into the global academic family tree right here.
  • Some photos from various trips I have taken can be found here.
  • Some additional photos (mainly of my cats) can be found here.
  • Cat people (you know who you are) should click here.
  • Extreme sports videos (Parkour, wingsuit base jumping, etc) can be found here.
  • Some important new developments in science can be found here.
  • I love live music: violent acoustic guitar, rock, metal, soul, jazz, bossa nova, sitar, international.
  • I am an ordained minister (in the Universal Life Church), and have performed wedding ceremonies in California.
  • I have held my high school discus record for more than 30 years.
  • Here is some video of me throwing the discus (age 16/160 lbs, age 17/190 lbs, age 18/220 lbs).
  • I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and train with my son at Church's ATA Martial Arts in San Diego.
  • I grew up in Colorado with my three brothers and my parents. My dad was (and is) an outdoorsman and hunter, mainly a bow-hunter (old-school recurve bows) for elk and deer, and a shotgun hunter for waterfowl and upland game birds, but also a rifle hunter for larger North American game. It was a rite-of-passage for one or more of us to join him on his yearly bow or rifle hunt (after a 10-mile hike into White River National Forest in Western Colorado), and to be out at 5am some weekend mornings freezing our butts off with him in his goose blind.
  • Colorado Public Radio recently broadcast an interview with my brother Jon, who works for the Colorado Division of Wildlife as an attorney and wildlife biologist. That interview can be found [ here ] or [ here ].
