I retired from my position as an academic advisor to undergraduate honors students at the University of Minnesota on May 31, 2013, a job I've done for decades and enjoyed very much. My most rewarding avocation is as a dramaturg in the local, very active theatre community. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, love swimming (my regular exercise), and walking. I live very close to a lake that's three miles in circumference and enjoy walking around it regardless of the weather. I've been a student of the lute for about twelve years now and still really enjoy both my lessons and practicing.
