The life of a husband, writer, physicist, and occasional musician isn’t all quiet and nerdy. Well, at least it’s not quiet. Judge for yourself. Have a look at my blog entries, where I try to comment on everything from the wonders of particle physics to the everyday joy of living.
I am an associate professor of experimental particle physics at Southern Methodist University (but I own ALL the crap in this blog), and my work takes me to the Large Hadron Collider at the CERN laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland.
I grew up in Connecticut and earned my Ph.D in physics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I also met my wonderful wife. Since then we’ve traveled from one end of the U.S. to the other, wherever physics took us. When I’m not trying to crack the mysteries of the universe, I’ve been known to write fiction and play the drums. Oh, and I co-authored a book with some awesome people. You should totally check it out. Learn more on my Books page!
