My wife Heather Green is also a geologist. We spend a lot of time together outdoors in the northwest with our son Evan and our dog Floyd.
I am a huge fan of bluegrass music, and have been playing guitar for over 20 years. At Princeton, I played with the bluegrass band Prospect Crossing, which included fiddle phenom Brittany Haas, (now in the Boston-based band Crooked Still), and banjo picker Paul Prestopino (formerly of the Chad Mitchell Trio and long-time back-up instrumentalist for Peter, Paul, and Mary). In Reno, I had the great pleasure to play with two groups, 6 Mule Pile-up, a bluegrass and old-time band, and The Road Apples, a folk and bluegrass trio. I recently played with the Moscow-Pullman based bands Taproot Bluegrass and The Chelseas, and am currently playing with The Moscow Mules.
