This site augments my University of Notre Dame site

A website seems a good opportunity to share, in part, what is meaningful to me. This space is a collection of sorts. Each portal represents an area of ongoing interest.

I have (perhaps too) many interests, but such is a good problem. I am a spouse, father, colleague, citizen ...

I am interested in people, places, and questions of justice. So much to learn, so little time.


I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.  — E. B. White.
