I live in a suburb of New York City with my wife, 2 cats, and several tarantulas!
I like nature generally and love to hike, look at insects (and spiders of course! :), and I am fascinated by astronomy and our explorations of other planets in our solar system! :) I also enjoy reading about particle physics and "big question" physics generally. There is so much going on in the world of physics that affect our perceptions of ourselves, our reality, and our place in the universe. This is an exciting time to be alive! :D
I have been running distributed computing projects since the inception of SETI@home in the 1990's. Because I an interested in astronomy and astrophysics, I signed on to Einstein@home!
