Me & Co-Authors
with two of my co-authors

I wanted to develop a web page to not only exhibit some of my work, but also to eventually share my experiences with those who have similiar interests. I also wanted to show-off my furry friends!

Darby (left) is a West Highland Terrier, and came to live with us at the age of two.  Hanna (also a Westie) came to us as a pup.  Aren't they cute?
