I am working with the Submarine Volcanism group at MBARI. My contributions include geographic information systems (GIS), multibeam mapping, database development and programming, video annotating, graphic design, photography, publishing, web authoring, sample handling and curation, and planning and participating in research cruises.

The pessimist complains about the wind;
The optimist expects the wind to change;
The realist adjusts the sails.
