My self-summary
I am independent, smart, funny, athletic and pretty easy-going. I love being outdoors and do a fair amount of biking, kayaking and gardening. Skiing too. I read a lot especially science books because I love science and also pretty much anything that's thought-provoking. I start the morning with coffee and the NYT.

I love music. Anything from Dave Matthews to Puccini. And I love my kids. I am most contented when I am cooking and listening to good music. I also enjoy feeding my family and friends whatever I've cooked.

I was born and raised in New York, just north of the city. I go home once a year and spend my time in Manhattan. I love New York. I also like London, Paris and la Roma.
What I’m doing with my life
I use my personal time to exercise, read and garden. At work I am using the last few years of my teaching career trying to bring more climate science to the high school curriculum.

I try always to have an adventure on the horizon. Last summer I went to the Arctic on a research vessel. Next month I'm skiing in Colorado. I have been studying Italiano for three years and hope to go to Italy in the not to distant future to become more fluent.
I’m really good at
1) teaching science
2) thinking about things
3) having "adventures"
4) being funny
5) being patient and kind
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love The Colbert Report and the Daily Show. Right now I'm reading "Big History", "A History of the World in 100 Objects", the story of Madama Butterfly because I'm going to go see it soon. Food? I love chocolate, ice cream, roasted vegetables, gorgonzola cheese, olives, red wine
The six things I could never do without

5) music

I spend a lot of time thinking about
reducing my carbon footprint. Climate change is so depressing...
On a typical Friday night I am
Not very exciting. Teaching makes me tired. I go out with my colleagues and have a beer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Then it wouldn't be private any more.
