Areas of Interest

My main geological interest is plate tectonics. In oceanography it is wave and tidal phenomenon.  I have a big interest in 3D modeling and animation using 3D Studio Max and Adobe Director to author educational software for my classes.



I have always had a passion for activities like hang gliding and surfing where the challenge is to get a free ride off of nature. My current recreational addiction is kite surfing.
