Film nut! Researcher, Film and Media Studies, Assistant Professor, soft spot for summer blockbusters, love running in Central Park. I go by 'Neil' in work circles, since that's what people hear during introductions and I got fatigued correcting everyone! But I'm reclaiming Anil 1.0 recently and among friends.
I was born in Edmonton, Alberta in the prairies and grew up in Kelowna, British Columbia, in the Okanagan Valley, which is Canada's largest wine region. I worked in a winery during college.
I am new to Airbnb (June 2012), but my parents have used it lots in their early retirement, even finding a lovely house in Costa Rica. That family swapped for my parents' home in Victoria, Canada.
I am quiet and spend time on my laptop trying to meet deadlines. I like studying at the Performing Arts Library when I am in NYC, or the campus libraries of course. This summer I am re-connecting with some graduate students in Film who worked with me on some ideas and some archival research last summer. Areas of interest are here: (website hidden)
