Books, Bikes, & Barks

A little about my life outside academia


It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to say that I’m an avid reader. I always try to squeeze in some pleasure reading even when I’m short on time. Be it fiction or non-fiction, you can usually assume I have at least two books on the go at any one time.

I didn’t start road cycling until graduate school, but it has quickly become a passion of mine. To be honest, I never imagined myself decked out in lycra but here I am today battling the elements and beating yesterday with my fellow cycling enthusiasts. Occasionally I can’t stop myself from wanting to share the adventures I have on the bike, so I found a space to do this right here.

I’m a proud dog and cat dad, and I love to show off my menagerie whenever I can.
