Background

Hometown: Tallahassee, FL

About Me: After I graduated with my PhD from USC I became a lecturer of human geography at Aberystwyth University in Wales, where I learned to speak approximately three words of Welsh. I was then appointed as an assistant professor of global affairs at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. I studied Estonian at the University of Pittsburgh, am a James Taylor fan, and firmly believe that the Oxford comma is elegant, proper, and necessary. 

Favorite Quote: "A man, though wise, should never be ashamed of learning more, and must unbend his mind." (Haemon, from Sophocles' Antigone)

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
