Some would say I am earthy, scattered at times, determined and goal oriented. All the ingredients needed for a professorship, yeah? Traveling is something I love, yet never have time to do. When I can pry myself away from the office and see an opportunity it isn't hard to get me out the door with a suitcase, running shoes, and a few bottles of wine. I have a love for mountains and, if needed, can survive the beach. I couldn't go a day without coffee (or, rather, 4 cups of coffee), my pup, and live music.
