I was born in Kansas. Lived in New Jersey, DC, Mississippi, Texas, and
Florida. Been to England, Scotland, Germany. I would say Canada, but not
sure that counts. I would like to go to Alaska, but being a Floridian I
may not be tough enough. My current job is at Kennedy Space Center, and
it is true - it is cool. I work at launching unmanned rockets.
Actually, I've been blessed in working at cool places. My son had an
intern job at KSC last summer. That made it even cooler. I prefer to
teach. I hav thought about quitting, but probably will not until son is
out of college next year.

``It doesn't have to do with the fundamental design so much as the complexity of the stuff we're building -- and if you make a mistake.''
