He co-directs an archaeological excavation on the Red Sea coast of Egypt. He also has a background in World War II and teaches a seminar on the topic. He and his wife Mary began their WWII oral interview project in 2004. They record the stories of veterans, both men and women, from all branches of the service. Thus far they have interviewed about 380 veterans both Allied and Axis. Their project is on-going.
