Please excuse the long period of inactivity, dear reader. After a long slumber, and many changes in my life, I am again launching this website and putting it back to work. You can find an updated curriculum vitae above and a terribly immodest professional biography as well. I’ll be blogging more frequently over the coming months, but in the mean time I am going to work to integrate my Twitter account into this page. I would hate for the readers of this blog to miss my 140-character ramblings or updates about my breakfast. With that, I think I am going to dig my heels into the sand and shove this boat off. Wish me luck!
