I have a beautiful daughter, born March 2011, who is my pride and joy. Someday I hope she'll have a dissertation of her own.

I enjoy photography when I can make the time, and took most of the photos in the top bar of this site. I'm also responsible for the loaf of bread pictured, along with numerous other forays into food chemistry. I've even got a recipe in a cookbook.

I enjoy ballroom dancing. Most recently, I've been practicing Argentine tango, but I also enjoy foxtrot, rumba, cha-cha, waltz and am always looking to pick up more dance skills. I love languages and linguistics, and speak rudimentary French and Japanese.

I ride more rarely these days, but I love both wrenching and riding on my Honda NT650 motorcycle.

You can find more information about me on Google+.
