  • What I do, where I work

  • I was employed with Pittsburgh’s original Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science from 1982 through 1991. During this tenure, I wore “many hats” including Curator of the “BioCorner” Embryology Exhibit, where chicks and occasionally ducklings were hatched in front of the public each weekend; Astronomical Observatory Coordinator; and Planetarium Lecturer.
