My name is Jack Espinosa.  I was Born in Miami, Fl....  I attended Miami Senior High School - home of the Stingarees.  I then attended MDC
and FIU. My interests include but are not limited to -
Astronomy, oceanography, the environment, biology, music, Mt. biking, SCUBA diving,
current events, history, science fiction, sports, technology,
anything R/C and of course family. I have developed a passion for passing down all this
amazing knowledge of the natural world and its processes to future generations.  Hopefully I can at least inspire them to appreciate the vast
complexity of the world and to make educated decisions as adults, consumers, and voters as it relates to the environment as well as humanity.  
Perhaps a few will revisit me as professionals in some science field one day to give a free lecture or two so I can catch up on grading....
