For me there is only the traveling on paths that
have heart, on any path that may have heart.
There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge
is to traverse its full length. And there
I travel looking, looking, breathlessly.

About Me:

I'm originally from Memphis, where I grew up and went to college at Christian Brothers. I received my Ph.D. in May of 1997 from the University of Delaware, in the joint program of the Dept. of Physics and Astronomy and the Bartol Research Institute. I joined the Solar Physics Group at MSU-Bozeman in January 1997. Here I've had the opportunity to participate in Mission Operations, Data Analysis, and Education & Public Outreach for several missions, including Yohkoh, TRACE, Hinode (Solar-B), and the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).
