Greetings-

I'm the lab manager for the Ultrafast Optics and Fiber Communications Laboratory in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University.

Here's a cute map if you're not familiar with campus...I live in the MSEE building.

In order to attempt some level of organization in this mess of information, I'll seperate this page into the following sections:

Personal Stuff

[Newsweek photo] Yep...that's me...or was. The photo's from what will most likely be my only national media exposure...Newsweek, 17-Oct-88. The picture had nothing to do with the associated article - they just wanted something flashy; so, there I am.

In case anybody's interested...here's some links to more stuff...

Things to Think About

Go ahead - pick a philosophy - any philosophy. Thoughts to define and guide ones actions...not meant to be taken all at one time; rather, each has validity at a specific moment in ones day to day interactions.
If someone is offended by one of these, I am sorry...all I can say is look at the meaning not the words. Click here to get back up to the index.
