Something you don’t know about me: I am a former Combat Engineer Officer in the U.S. Army and have trained extensively in the removal of landmines. I am also one of five brothers and sisters.
One weird fact about the town I grew up in: I grew up in San Jose. The streetlights in San Jose are yellow so that the glare from the light will not affect the work being done at the Lick Observatory.
