Thumnail picture of Delphi

Welcome to my home page. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you and to share with you some of the things which interest me, and which I hope will be of some interest to you.

Each picture on this page is a link to another page with more information and further pictures of the place depicted.

I am a Professor of Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology at San Francisco State University and have taught in the Department of Classics for over twenty years. During that time I have been involved in several overseas study programs and tours. I served as the academic director three times for our Semester in Athens Program and once on the London Semester. I have led tours to Greece, Egypt, Syria and Turkey, where I excavated as a graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley at the site of Aphrodisias. I have travelled extensively throughout Europe and parts of the Near East. In May-June 2000 I hope to lead a tour to Syria.

I have a number of hobbies which I enjoy doing, when I am not teaching, researching, or travelling; among these are the construction of a model train and cooking.
