I spend most of my time typing and answering the phone, and thus have to pick on the people in the lab for my daily data fix. Outside of the lab, most of my time is spent with my family. My wife, Laura Young, is an artist. She doubles as a personal guidance counselor and font of wisdom for me and our son Mattis. Mattis tries to get me to argue with him, particularly about 19th century literature about which I know little if anything. Among my other interests are music (except elevator and polka), contemporary art (from the Saars to Sean Scully), and politics.
