Attended Johns Hopkins University with DHS '66 buddies, David Dennison and Nick Karbonik.
Received BA(1970), MA(1972), and PhD(1974) in Chemical Oceanography --- Remember Jacques Cousteau was BIG then.
Taught Geoscience at Case Western Reserve University from 1974 to 1978.
Fell in love with a medical student and enjoyed reading her medical books more than my oceanography books.
Attended CWRU Medical School from 1976-1980 and earned MD. Residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Los Angeles County/University of Southern California Medical School from 1980-84. End of education---28 years was enough!

I was on the golf team at DHS. Gave it up for 20 years and re-started about 10 years ago. Play to a 7 handicap. Tennis, environmental trips
Scientific publications in oceanography, geoscience, and diagnostic radiology.
My only award in my life was the award for the alumnus that traveled the greatest distance to the 30th DHS Reunion. It's still in my office at work. Sorry I couldn't make it to the 35th to defend my title.
Habitat for Humanity, Wildlife Rescue, Napa Valley Land Trust
I remember high school as one of the best times of my life. Lots of great friends and great teachers. I fund an annual scholarship for a current DHS student in honor of two of the best teachers I ever knew, Arthur Johnston (English), who taught me how to write, and William Oberle (Math), who taught me how to think.
