I was born and raised outside Walkertown, North Carolina. Stimulated by the Gemini and Apollo space programs and the James Bond movies, I became a mad scientist at a young age and eventually evolved into a nuclear physicist. I joined the faculty at the Naval Academy in August 1989. My hobbies include sporting clays, hunting, woodworking, depression glass collecting, and genealogy of northeastern Forsyth family groups. I've taught SP211 and SP212 (Intro Physics), SP434 (Nuclear Physics) for many moons and the Quantum Mechanics courses SP324 and SP425 for several years.
