Welcome to my personal web page!

I don’t update this page very often, but every now and then I get the chance and the motivation to do so.  Don’t expect anything too fancy here.

First, here is a link back to my professional home page.  (Or, if that’s where you just came from, then merely press “back” on your browser.)



2022:  My wife Amy and I went to a Tampa Bay Rays baseball game.  The selfie we took reminds me of the one from the Lightning hockey game in 2019, which is posted below….  The home team won this time, which is good … except for the fact that I was cheering for the visiting Boston Red Sox, whom I have supported for (quite literally) as long as I can remember.  Apparently I bring bad luck when I attend games in person.



2021:  My younger daughter Coral is about to graduate high school.  Here is a photo of my two daughters at Coral’s school banquet.  Coral is the one with long hair; Aspen got a haircut recently, as you can tell.



2020:  Here are my two daughters in spring, 2020.  Aspen had to fly home from college because of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.  She is very disappointed to be missing school, but I am happy to have her home.



Every personal web page should have a photo of a cat sitting in a box.  This is our cat Tyler.



2019:  My wife (Amy) and I attended a hockey game in 2019.  The Lightning lost, but it was a lot of fun anyway, and we got a pretty good selfie.



2017:  Wow, it has been years – literally years! – since I updated this page.  I can barely believe it.  This fall (Aug 2017), my younger daughter Coral started high school, so the two girls are now in school together.  Here is a photo of the two of them getting ready to drive to school together on the first day of the school year.  Coral is on the left, Aspen is on the right.



2013:  My family is in Australia this year while my wife and I are on sabbatical from USF.  I’m not sure if I’ll post photos from our time in Australia…maybe just a couple here and there.




2012: Here’s a photo of the girls during Chanukah at our house.  In our house it is perfectly acceptable to wear a Santa hat while lighting Chanukah candles!




Wow, it seems that it has been around 2 or 3 years since I posted recent photos of my family here.  Time flies!  But here are a couple recent photos of my girls.  On the left is Coral (in foreground) with her friend Ana.  We were watching a July 4 parade at the home of Ana’s family.  On the right is Aspen (wearing Greco shirt) with her friend Delaney.  The two girls had just finished playing a middle-school soccer game against each other.  They are teammates on a club soccer team, but rivals when their middle schools play against each other.  In this photo, I think Aspen looks a lot like her dad – poor thing!

2011:  Something strange appears to be happening to my right eye, but otherwise this is a nice one of the family.




2009/2010:  It has been a while since I posted photos of my family – not since late in 2007!  So, time for some updates.  These are from calendar year 2009.  I kept the older photos below.  You can see how much the girls have grown since 2006!


My daughter Aspen at her summer camp (Circle F Dude Ranch) in summer 2009:



My daughter Coral (on her 6th birthday, February 2009) wearing her cute purple hat and giving her “pose for the camera” smile:



One of the whole family (it’s a little blurry, sorry) after a performance by Coral’s kindergarten class:




2007:  The next two are from our summer vacation in 2007, to Virginia (following the AEESP Conference).

2006:  And finally, a couple from our family summer vacation in July 2006:

That’s all for now….
