My family and myself

I currently work at Sierra Research, a small air pollution consulting firm located in downtown Sacramento, California. My work address is:
Sierra Research
1801 J Street
Sacramento, CA 95814
w. (916) 444-6666
fax (916) 444-8373

I have been employed by Sierra Research for sixteen years, primarily doing air quality dispersion modeling and other air quality meteorological consulting work.

In my spare time, I'm Treasurer of a community musical theater group located in Davis, CA, called Davis Musical Theater Company (DMTC).
I also maintain a personal Web Log that also focuses on an eclectic mix of community musical theater, weather, politics, and pop culture.

What's up with me lately? I guess the strangest thing I've been up to in the last few years was to get involved with the California Gubernatorial Recall Election in 2003. There were 135 candidates who qualified for the ballot - Arnold Schwarzenegger, Cruz Bustamante, Arianna Huffington, Gary Coleman, Larry Flynt, Mary Carey - and yours truly. It was an interesting campaign - met lots of interesting people - and in the end, I got 1,837 votes (one-third of which came from Los Angeles, where I know precisely no one), enough to garner me 41st place.
