More details, or more accurately search keywords just in case any of my old comrades are google-stalking for my email address: I was born in California (that makes me a citizen, so they can't kick me out if they secede) but grew up in Pittsburgh, and went to Allderdice what seems like an awfully long time ago. Maybe because it was. I spent a few years in the academic hothouse of Swarthmore, becoming (barely) socialized, and learning some physics and a few survival skills like playing guitar badly, drinking, drinking coffee, and reading The Ambassadors. For a while I helped run WSRN, aka Radio That Really Shreds. After a decent interval (or long enough to forget that midterms suck) I went back to grad school at Rutgers in astrophysics. I have sojourned in Boston, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Southern California, Northern California, Maryland, and Arizona.
