My wife and I live outside of Waddington, NY - about 20 miles from Potsdam and have a camp in the woods outside of Parishville, NY. I was born in Syracuse and lived my early years in Utica, NY and Detroit, Mich. I have lived in St. Lawrence County since the third grade, attending high school in Heuvelton, NY. Outside of my life at Clarkson I enjoy travelling, motorcycling, snowmobiling, and other outdoor sports. I sponsor annual trips to Australia for undergraduate students with my wife, and co-sponsor an MBA trip with Professor MacKinnon to Thailand and Australia.
