Howdy! I'm a computer science grad student working on my PhD at the University of Texas at Austin. In the backyard at home my wife and I have four hens, a pond with a fish, and a hive of honeybees. I love traveling to other places to meander about in the streets and absorb how folks live around the world; so far I've lived in several places in the US, but also in France and Austria. I've traveled as far abroad as Nepal but have yet to make it to so many other places ... always the challenge is choosing between revisiting familiar and wonderful people, and striking out to try something new.
