Here I am in front of Manorola, one of the five towns that make up Cinque Terre on the western coast of Italy. Lindsey and I visited Cinque Terre during a week vacation following a Cassini Planetary Science Group meeting in Rome during the summer of 2008.


My wife Lindsey is an
aerospace manager for Space Sciences Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley. We met at Cornell University in a mathematical physics course in 2001. This picture was taken during a hike in Pasadena, CA, in the summer of 2007.


Noelle is our baby girl. She was born on September 18th 2010 at 11:03 am. This photo on the left was taken in July 2011 and is entitled "Rubber Ducky, your the one". The photo below was taken in September 2012, and shows a nearly two-year-old Noelle holding her baby sister Cora for the first time!


Cora is the  newest addition to our family. She was born on August 20th, 2012, at 6:04pm. This photo was taken as soon as we got home from the hospital, about 24 hrs after she was born.

Suka and Ezra

These are our two greyhounds Suka and Ezra. Both are ex-racers and enjoying retirement. This particular image was taken in the courtyard of Avery House at Caltech in the summer of 2008.
