About Me

I am a Diagnostic Radiologist by profession. I also have a degree in Metallurgical Engineering.  I have had a lifelong interest in Astronomy and Astrophysics since childhood as well as an appreciation for the beauty of the Universe.  My background in Radiology and Medical Imaging gives me some unique perspective and training in observing as well as astro-imaging.  This hobby in a sense is an extension of what I do on an every day basis.

I am affiliated with The Astronomical League and The Albuquerque Astronomical Society and The American Academy for the Advancement of Science.
