You make your residence in Boulder, Colorado. How did you get there, and what’s a day like in Boulder?

I moved to Boulder in 1992 when I was hired in a tenure track position in the photography area of the art department at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I had been teaching for about 18 years at that point at a number of universities around the U.S. but could never find a place to stay. I wanted to be in the west and it worked out.

A typical day in Boulder is usually jam-packed with scheduled boring stuff and counter-balanced with lots of curiosity. I have always been pretty inclined toward art and science so from cooking in the kitchen to working in the darkroom to making a kite, science and art are usually at the core of what happens in a day.
