Moderators-dtaglione

  • Moderating is the perfect fit for me – I’m the child my mother worried about because from an early age I always talked to “strangers”!  I’m told I’d say hi to just about anyone … and kept at it until they replied back.
  • I love to moderate in cities where I can visit a restaurant featured on my favorite Food Network show.
  • I bleed GREEN for my Michigan State Spartans!
  • The farmer’s market, my favorite way to spend a Saturday morning.

Moderator-gskinner

  • How did I get into research?  I didn’t, this job is all about discovery – finding out why things are the way they are and formulating solutions. What could be better?
  • I race my bikes whenever I can. Me on my Ducati.
  • Urban exploration is a favorite past time – there’s lots a city can offer if you seek it out.
  • I’ve been working on mechanical toys from the time I was 3. Cars are really just supersized.

  • Love to travel. Let’s go!
  • You can take the boy out of Detroit, but you can’t take the Detroit out of the boy…yes, even the Pistons and Lions!

Moderator-mcarpenter 

  • I just love listening to people, talking to people, working out what makes them tick.
  • I think sports keep me young...but then I do them and my body reminds me how old I am.
  • I am generally kept under control by those much younger than myself.
  • Red wine is something to be cherished–at no time should it be heated and have spices added to it.

  • Big fan of pop psychology books.
  • Secret artist (think big & bold not high quality!).
  • Rain or shine, running’s always a good idea.
