The alter ego hidden under that professorial persona:

  • avid gadget guru—if any gadget has blinking LEDs, the boy is mesmerized instantly
  • techie computer geek—Mac enthusiast driven by an unrelenting demand for teaching excellence
  • serious amateur photographer—butterfly chaser integrating the pleasure of aesthetics with the beauty of the moment
  • guitar hero wanna be—Beatles forever! (“When I’m 64 is not so far anymore.”)
