I was born in Cadillac, Michigan. As a child I lived
in Marion, MI; Lake Odessa, MI; Sauk Village, IL; and Burke, VA. I received
a B.S. in Mathematics from Calvin College
in Grand Rapids, MI, in 1981.
My M.S. (84) and Ph.D. (86) in Computer Science are from
Personal Background & Interests
Outside of work, my time is spent with my
(wife Kathy, sons Philip and Michael, daughter Christina),
my local church
(Grace Covenant Presbyterian),

and the San Antonio Spurs.
I will rarely turn down a donut or a bratwurst.
