Tell us about the interesting places you have lived or visited since High School. Which is the most interesting and why?

College in Nashille. After military duty in Germany, I got married in Madrid, went to graduate school in Miami, FL. Post-doc in Texas, and job in Hawaii. 17 years ago, we moved to Norway. Every place had/has a lot to offer; perhaps most interesting was Hawaii as I got to know a number of Hawaiian natives and their culture.

What funny and/or interesting stories can you tell us about your job?

In grad school, no money left after paying Christmas bills, I was working with marine shrimp as a research subject. My tank containing reserve shrimp lost it's oxygen input and they all died. Luckily, I got there just afterwards, and froze the shrimp. That was our protein source for the month of February. Still enjoy eating them.

What brings you the most joy these days?

Walk in the park behind our home in Bergen, with our two dachshunds. Gardening, etc. on our farm in Voss Norway. Wife is gourmet cook, and we exchange dining with other couples who have similar interests. Very active in church.
