Although born in Cleveland, OH, I was raised from a young age in Chicago, Illinois where I received my BA in chemistry at University of Illinois at Circle Campus (1969) and MS in chemistry at Loyola University (1977). I received a Ph.D. in chemistry from the Georgia Institute of Technology (1985) and did a postdoctoral fellowship in the same department (1985-1987). I then worked as a research scientist at the Centers for Disease Control (1987-1990), followed by CIBA Vision (1990-1994). After a brief interlude (2 yrs) with a technology venture, I began teaching in 1996 at the former Georgia Perimeter College where I am currently Associate Chair of Physical Sciences (chemistry, physics, and astronomy) at Dunwoody Campus.
