Witnessing the moment when students figure out something that deeply challenged them.

The ones I'm teaching. Living the dream...

What is your personal motto?

1. Look up. 2. Protect your head.

Playing with my kid, hiking, backpacking, skiing, relaxing by any body of water.

Advice you would give to students as they start the academic year?

Make good choices.
