I was born in Akron, Ohio, when they still made tires there, and I retain a soft spot for the midwest, though I have lived in California forever. I'm a semi-retired anthropology professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I've been at UCSC for over 25 years. I read, write, teach, travel, and hike. I've also lived in Brazil, Japan, Ecuador, and Sweden and speak several foreign languages with varying degrees of proficiency (fluent Portuguese, good Spanish, some Japanese, and mangled others). I enjoy nature, cities, and especially, different kinds of people. Often I travel with my wife Lynn, who is a semi-retired adult-school teacher and shares similar interests and language abilities and, by the way, also likes to laugh.
We both value humor, open-mindedness, and simplicity.
