I grew up in Ohio, but I've also lived in MA, CA, IA, Australia, and Aotearoa/New Zealand. I most recently spent about a decade living and studying in Los Angeles. Now that I'm back in the midwest as a professor, I rely on airbnb for conference travel and trips to the cities I miss living in. When I'm not teaching the next generation, I spend my time hiking, traveling, cooking, and reading. I'm a fan of great furniture, sunshine, and good coffees and teas.
