Welcome to my home page! Here you will find links to pages which describe the various aspects of my life.

My work life as a crystallographer.

My hobby of nosing into my relations.

My hobby of photography.

My distraction of translocating to other places.


  • Yapoha Crater is a small cinder cone located just north of the North Sister in the central Cascades.
  • Teardrop Pool is located in the summit crater of the South Sister. Note the hiker near the center of the picture.
  • Ft. Rock is a highly eroded volcanic crater located in the high desert of Central Oregon. This area was a shallow lake during the ice age when the eruption occurred.
  • View of the Central Cascades from the north slope of Mt. Jefferson. This photo was taken at dawn.
  • Mt. St. Helens (354Kb) as seen from near Spirit Lake in both 1989 and 2006.
  • Mt. St. Helens' dome as seen from the crater rim in 1992. Spirit Lake, partially covered by floating logs, is to the right with Mt. Rainier almost hidden in the clouds above it.
