I am proud of my varied interests outside of academia!
In no particular order, I am:
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 video gamer. Current favorites: Red Dead Redemption 2
and Anno 1800.
A movie buff. My all-time top three: 2001 A Space Odyssey,
The Thin Red Line, The English Patient.
A lover of breadth over depth, in academia and in life.
"Specialization is for insects" (Robert Heinlein).
My cats: Pearl and Lazer Beam!
