Who am I?

     Hello, my name is Christopher M. Ritzi, and I am basically from various places in Texas.  I was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, and then moved about the country until settling in Lubbock, Texas.  This is were I lived from elementary school through high school.  I then moved to College Station (where I earned my Bachelor's in Biology), Ponder (before I got married), and Alpine (where I earned my Master's in Biology at Sul Ross State University).   I then lived in Terre Haute, Indiana, were I defended my dissertation toward a Ph.D. in Ecology in the Department of Life Sciences at Indiana State University.  In Aug 2004, I have moved back to Alpine, Texas, and begun my current job as an Assistant Professor of Invertebrate Biology at Sul Ross State University.  In the summer of 2007, I was appointed the Chair of the Biology Department.  As of the fall of 2010, I officially received tenure and was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor of Biology.

     My family is made up of my wife, Clare, and my daughters, Catherine and Teresa.  We live together with 3 cats (Star, Xena, and Jinx) and a variable number of fish (which are all Dorothy to my youngest thanks of Elmo).  When I am not teaching or working, I like to cook, read, knit, and do things outside (hike, camp, bird watching). 

More to come.
