Biography:

Physician in family practice. Many decades ago in college and grad school I was in a developmental biology program concentrating on insect endocrinology at Northwestern University. We raised Manduca sexta and Oncopeltus fasciatus for use in studies on juvenile hormone and ecdysone. Then came medical school. I am currently interested in wildlife photography, mostly birds, plants, and insects. When the weather's right for observing, astronomy is fun as well.
