If you have a quick question about The Clark Honors College please send me an e-mail (I do not have a permanent office in Chapman Hall and typically I am working virtually from home). You can also Book A Meeting with me.. Prior to June 2023, I provided support for CAS Department and Program web pages, and may be able to provide some help for those units.

If you need University Computing help, please visit the Tech Desk or the following web page: Prior to August 2020, the Technoligy Help Desk was located in the basement of PLC. It is now in the EMU


General hardware information. I find the Ars Technia system guide insightful.

Brief Bio

I graduated from Reed College in 1987 with a B.A. in Psychology. My undergraduate thesis ought to be fairly amusing by now: "The Effects of Posted Feedback on LaserWriter Payment." In spite of studying how my fellow Reedies did (or did not) pay for their LaserWriter printing, my thesis was produced on a PDP-11 running UN*X, edited with emacs, and formatted with nroff commands. And I walked to school uphill both ways through knee-deep mud.

Upon graduation from Reed, I continued a career in computer user support.

In my spare time, I write science fiction and fantasy short stories. I am also an amateur harptist.

I've lived in Eugene since 1999.
