Endlessly curious accidental academic with a penchant to blend social justice and technology. Currently I am a data scientist at the University of Miami in Florida.

Apart from this I own the California Cafe in Huaraz, Peru. After modest travel in the 1990s I settled in Huaraz and started this cafe with my wife. It has been a great way for us to enable good travel experiences for others as others enable good experiences for us. I also have plenty of experience in the region.

If you do make it to Huaraz, make sure to check out the weekly pick-up ultimate frisbee game I started in 2004. We meet at the cafe at 11:00 am every Friday and go to play!
