Originally from New Jersey, I recently finished grad school in Boston and am now a professor at A&M It's been a whirlwind experience the last several years and I've had a blast, but am very excited to now be in Texas.
Friends have described me as an absurd realist. By this, I think they mean that I have a dry, deadpan sense of humor that's highly entertained by everyday experiences otherwise, they just must not take me seriously. Aside from cracking bad jokes, I'm a fan of cooking, exercise, reading, and am more and more interested in both hiking and fishing. I'm also looking forward to having the time and resources to travel. Although I went abroad a fair bit in grad school (France and China were highlights, also Japan), I'd like to get away more than just once a year or so. Oh, and I love BBQ and would love to explore the Texas BBQ scene (when in Rome...).
What else? By now, you can probably tell I have a horribly stilted way of writing about myself. I like to think I am better at talking in person than writing these profiles. So I think I'll leave it at that!
