The focus and passions of my life are to be found mostly under a clear dark night sky or looking through the viewfinder of a camera.
I am an avid amateur astronomer, and a member of the American Association of Variable Star Observers since 1974.
I am a model railroader and railfan.
I have been into photography for over 30 years.
I enjoy fantasy role playing games, and have run a Dungeons & Dragons campaign since 1979.
I have been writing for an even longer time.
As time and weather permit, I also try to get out cycling, hiking, gardening and enjoying fine dining with my wife.
