I am a member of New Paltz Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). I attended Olney Friends School in Barnesville, Ohio, and Earlham College, Richmond, Indiana, which has Quaker roots.
My interest in Star Trek has intensified in recent years, mainly as a spinoff of creating the coolest Star Trek car on the planet. Since creating Prius-class shuttlecraft Zhang Heng if have become involved with STARFLEET International, and became founding First Officer of its local chapter, the USS Abraham Lincoln NCC-71809. I have also become involved with making new Star Trek episodes with Star Trek Phase II where I am a contributor on several levels. I will have a walk-on part in the upcoming episode Kitumba. I have also written a piece of fan fiction, a novelette also inspired by the car.
I am also a volunteer with the local chapter of the American Red Cross. Before becoming affiliated with the Red Cross I made two trips to New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. I created a PowerPoint and a video summarizing my experience there.
