He has published research articles in scholarly journals and has presented papers at major academic conferences.
He enjoys fishing in general, but especially
flyfishing for trout. Other interests include snowboarding, skiing,
cross-country skiing, flytying, shooting guns at stuff, hiking,
boating and camping with his wife and children.
Despite all of his extracurricular activities, he still manages to find time for work. He teaches undergraduate classes and received an Extraordinary Merit in Teaching award from the College of Arts and Sciences in 2006. He also has received numerous academic advising awards.
