PERSONAL: To me, the best parts of life are the moments with my wife and our three kids. I love experiencing diverse cultures, traveling, and have lived for six years in four continents beyond North America. My activities include sprint-triathlons, pottery, photography, metal and wood sculpting, tennis, cross-country skiing, and soccer. I love literature, from the novels of Dostoevsky to the poems of T.S. Eliot; from the short stories of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to the epic myths of J.R.R. Tolkien. I also enjoy creative writing.
