A few factoids about me (since third person bios are awkward):

– I was once offered a job in Fairbanks, Alaska. The hiring manager identified Polar Bears as a work-related danger.

– I spent two summers living with a group of Pakistani exchange students. It changed my life.

– I’m an amateur Genealogist. I am a 10th Generation descended of the Pilgrim Edward Doty

– I have a playlist composed of covers of Phil Collin’s “In the Air Tonight”. It has approximately thirty covers.

– My cat, Rowan, pretty much runs my life.
