My wife and I are professors at the University of California at San Diego. We study how the human brain understands language, sleeps, and gets drunk. We have a daughter, 15, and son, 16, who dance, debate, and are just now surpassing us in size and knowledge. We have traveled as a family to Mexico, Guatemala, Croatia, and throughout the US. We used to live in France. My wife is Croatian, and I am Californian.
