Biography

Andreas Veh is from Berlin, Germany, he figures that you noticed his - all but vanished - accent. He is married to Kate (she is from Ketchikan, Alaska). They have 9 and 7 years old sons who are German-Americans from South Korea.

Andy received a B.S. degree in Physics from the Technical University Berlin in 1990, an M.S. degree in Physics/Astronomy from Mankato State University, Minnesota, class of 1994, and an M.A. degree in Math from Chadron State College, Nebraska, class of 2001.

He was previously employed at Western Nebraska Community College in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, full-time from 1994 to 2001 (adjunct until 2008), where he taught Physics, Astronomy, Math, Geology and German. From 2001 to 2002 he taught Physics at Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton, Oregon. Since 2002 he has been a full-time Physics and Math professor at Kenai Peninsula College in Soldotna, Alaska.

His main hobby is spending time with his sons. In summer they kayak on small lakes and go camping. In winter they often use their cross-country skis and of course go sledding.

He also does astronomy as much as he can and writes an astronomy column for the Redoubt Reporter in Soldotna. You can visit his astronomy page at http://chinook.kpc.alaska.edu/~ifafv/.
