I grew up in Vernon Connecticut the fifth boy in a family of  eight. Family has always been a big part of my life. The sense of community here at Dublin was one of the main reason I went  from being a computer consultant at Dublin, to working full time here and finally living on campus. I can't think of a  better place to live and raise my own three kids. 

What book has made you think the most? The easy answer is any high level programming book I've read.  If I had to pick a non-technical book I would have to choose   between "The Speed of Dark" and "A Tale of Two Cities". I  remember "A Tale of Two Cities" as being the first book I read in school that I actually wanted to analyze and look closer at.  "The Speed of Dark" is a Science Fiction tale about a person with Autism and was written by an author who son is Autistic.  Having a number of relatives with disorders in the Autism spectrum, I found this book to be very thought provoking.

If you could be a superhero, what would you want your  
superpowers to be?
 The power to heal others. 

If your life had a theme song, what would it be? This hasn't changed for me since I picked it for my high school  quote. "You can't always get what you want" by the Rolling  Stones. 

What teacher has had the most impact on you? How were they  
special?  
One of my College Professors. He wasn't the best teacher I ever had but he probably had the most impact. His philosophy of education being a journey has stuck with me. 

You are hosting a dinner party and must invite 3 famous people.  
Who would you choose and why?
Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, and Alexander Graham Bell.  Just imagine the ideas that would come out if these three  
people were in the same room together.
