David Bishop

I enjoy spending time with my two children, Forrest and Meredith (they represent my best work to date!). When I am not involved in family affairs or academic pursuits, I continue to volunteer with the local Boy Scout troop as an assistant scoutmaster and merit badge instructor. For relaxation, I enjoy sailing on Lake Pepin, jazz, biking, backpacking, and collecting vintage audio equipment and modern architecture (especially Mies van der Rohe and Pierre Koenig). I grew up in the driftless area of northwestern Illinois (Elizabeth, Ill.).
