Yes, its true, I was born on a Halloween in Buffalo, NY, which may explain
a great many things. My first experiences in planetary
exploration was as a NASA Planetary Geology summer intern in 1979 for
the Voyager Project during the Voyager 2 Jupiter encounter.
(LPI has a similar summer intern
program, in which I participate as an advisor.)
In 1988 I completed my Ph.D. at Washington University in St. Louis
under Dr. William B. McKinnon. Since arriving at the LPI in 1991 I
have been using Voyager stereo images to map the topography and geology of the
icy outer planet satellites and Mars. I have been a stereo image
afficionado for many years, and am currently compiling a
3-D Stereo Atlas
of the Solar System, for release on CD-ROM in July 1997.
Other interests include 20th Century history, the Titanic, volleyball, scuba, and
deep sea diving.
