I've recently transitioned from academia to the IT industry. I like exploring new neighborhoods, reading in coffee shops, and browsing second-hand bookstores. I like to travel light, having found that a there aren't many places I can't get to without a daypack, a paperback, and a credit card. I have a comfy old house in Vancouver, but will be living in the Bay Area for the next while. Weekdays I'll be hard at work at my new office but am looking forward to exploring and making new friends on the weekends.
