Since joining the DESI Group in April 2016 I look forward to the daily opportunities to learned more about the DESI Project while working with an estimated two hundred physicist and astronomers that make up the international DESI collaboration which is based at Lawerence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Family, family, family time, is what I do for fun. I especially enjoy engaging in lego projects with my grandson where he is creating all sorts of awesome things, from aircrafts, robots, and buildings, telescopes are in the near future.
