I am a hospice volunteer, and a member of the Medical Ethics Committee at Olean General Hospital.
I commute to school weekly from Clarion, PA, where I live with my wife, who teaches sculpture at Clarion University, and my daughter, who keeps me young by turning me on to new music, and our five (!) cats. I enjoy cooking, exercise, dancing, classic cocktails, playing pool and poker, and watching hockey.
