My colleagues, students, readers, audiences, and clients know me as a:
- PROFESSOR of Geology, juggling teaching, scholarship, and service.
- AUTHOR of six books, most recently The Boatman (Harvard, 2017): A seventh book is submitted.
- SPEAKER and field trip leader on a range of topics.
- CONSULTANT on diverse geo-topics, often for museums and public education.
Away from work, I'm a husband, father, son, friend, and solitary soul whose principal hobbies are Nature, reading, cooking, and public television.
