Family of Robin J. DeWitt Knauth
I grew up in Marinette,
a small town in northern Wisconsin, along the shores of Lake Michigan.
I've lived in Shelburne VT, Marinette WI, Lakewood WI, Princeton NJ, Vancouver BC, Cambridge MA, Somerville MA, Arlington MA, and Williamsport PA, attending the Marinette Public High School, Princeton University, Westminster Choir College, Regent College, and Harvard University.
In May of 1995 I met my husband -
Geoffrey S. Knauth (Geoff) of NYC, Stonington CT, Antigua West Indies, and Cambridge MA. We married in 1996 at Archibald Lake in Lakewood WI, where my family has a cabin.
Geoffrey attended the Lycee Francais de
New York, Rumsey Hall, Choate, and Harvard College.
He is the son of Margaret and Christopher Knauth of NYC, Percy and Behri Knauth of Stonington.
He was a Senior Systems Engineer doing logistics for BBN Technologies (GTE/Verizon) in Cambridge MA until May '02, when he switched over to BAE (British Aerospace Engineering).
Geoffrey is fluent in Russian, French and German, has traveled extensively, is interested in basically everything, and has done some really incredible things. Among them - flying search and rescue missions as a private pilot and CAP volunteer, running at least 15 marathons, competing twice at the World Rowing Championships as a U.S. National Team coxswain, working as a planetarium lecturer at Mystic Seaport, volunteering for everything (Reading for the Blind, Free Software Foundation treasurer, C.R.A.S.H.-B. Sprints World Indoor Rowing Championships board, Head of the Charles Regatta volunteer coordinator/umpire/announcer, etc.), and much more...
Geoffrey is also "Wonder-Dad" for our two wonderful children:
Alexander Davidson Knauth (3/97)
William Whitman Knauth (3/99)
Alexander is a bundle of energy
and joy, who loves to build things. He can build an airplane out of
anything. He also loves to sing - usually songs that he makes up himself.
'Sweet William' is my angel, thoughtful and caring - currently intent on learning to play the Violin.
They also both love trains and airplanes, biking, and flying kites.
I also have one wonderful sister
