I'm a 65 year old retired police officer/detective and worked my entire career in Marin County. I was born in Australia and raised in Sonoma County. I have a B.S. degree in accounting from Arizona State University.
I have always been interested in science and technology and have been a fan of the space program since my childhood. All the astronauts are my heroes as are the scientists and engineers who work to further the world's knowledge. I have a strong belief that there is intelligent life somewhere else in our galaxy and realize that the speed of light transmissions we are limited to may be too slow to communicate with another E.T. intelligence in my lifetime. I hope we make the world changing discovery and make "Contact" before I pass away.
My hobbies are sailing the great SF Bay and beyond and riding my Harley-Davidson V-Rod motorcycle.
Much luck and success in your quest,
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I'm fascinated by the possibility of making contact with intelligent life outside our planet and am enthusiastic to do any small thing I can to further that search. I think it's great that someone came up with the idea to run a program that allows the average person like me to make a contribution of CPU time to assist with your endeavor.
