I'm a scientist, writer, and educator helping to connect human experience to a cosmic perspective that gives a sense of meaning to our individual feelings, thoughts, and actions.

This web site is a snapshot of how I see the world and what I'm interested in at the moment. Mostly it's a way for me to collect, organize and articulate my own thoughts. But it's also a framework for discussions with friends and collaborators. My ideas and opinions are always works in progress, based on my understanding of information and experiences I've gathered thus far. So I welcome your comments and thoughtful disagreements to help our ideas evolve and to develop better ways of understanding and doing things.
