"I'm a 44th year Computer Science major, and this my 31st year at MTU.  I did get a few degrees along the way (BS at Michigan State, MS and PhD at Purdue), but I'm still learning and I hope within another year or two to have finally figured it all out.  Teaching CS1121 and CS3421 keeps me and my wife fed.  I enjoy hiking and backpacking and find trains (real ones and models) fascinating.  I really like to write programs (mostly in Java, never in C), which is what got me into computer science in the first place.  You'll also find me refereeing middle and high school football games during the fall semester."
