It is difficult for me to break my interests and activities up into the traditional categories of "professional," "personal" and "community service." Perhaps I am just being difficult, but most of my interests and activities blend into one another, overlap. I rarely watch a movie or read a book "for fun" without thinking of how I might use it for a class; my "vacations" are always related in some way to my writing or teaching.
As this page grows (perhaps like Topsy) I will include information on what I do when I am not teaching classes, meeting with students, sitting in committee meetings, grading papers, or writing. This may include recipes, movie and book recommendations, photo galleries, and other narcissistic ruminations. So, come back soon!
