About the Author

I have been a laser physicist and educator for 30 years, with more than 60 publications in the scientific literature.  In addition to my extensive work in R&D, I have taught university-level physics for 10 years, and tutored students in physics and mathematics at both the high school and college levels.

I am now retired and living on Siesta Key in Florida.  I’ve been dividing my time among several “fun” activities:

  • Volunteering in the Education Department at Mote Marine Laboratory, Sarasota, Florida
  • Honing my photographic skills by capturing the tropical beauty of the Sarasota area
  • Writing blogs in both nature photography and everyday physics
