In my retirement I am a Harvard University Herbaria Associate continuing to pursue botanical research on New England floristics (see atlas link at left) and
my online Vascular Flora of Concord, Massachusetts.
Also, for fun, I read about quantum gravity and cosmology and chase other butterflies, such as my lovely wife, Erika, a nature artist.
We have been thriving for more than two years on the whole-food, plant-based, no-oil, no-nuts diet proven by
Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., MD
to be the best for cardiovascular health. We have experienced first-hand measurable health benefits as well as a clear enhancement of our sense of well-being.
My volunteer activities also include being a regional reviewer for the Flora of North America Project.
