I am proud of my varied interests outside of academia!

In no particular order, I am:

  • A committed family man, happily married to my wife Olivia and the proud fur-father of two cats: Pearl and Lazer Beam!

  • An avid writer of science-fiction, especially transhumanist and utopian. Favorite authors: Kim Stanley Robinson, Ted Chiang, Isaac Asimov, Margaret Atwood, P.D. James, Arthur C. Clarke.

  • An inveterate sports fan. I follow most sports year-round.
    I was a sprint runner in high school and I've been a really
    bad tennis and association football player all my life.

  • A movie buff. My all-time top three: 2001 A Space Odyssey,
    The Thin Red LineThe English Patient.

  • A lover of breadth over depth, in academia and in life.
    "Specialization is for insects" (Robert Heinlein).
