I have a bachelors from UofA in History and a masters from ASU in Public Administration. After being in school for eight years I am pretty happy that I no longer have to do homework. Urban planning, city development, and community building in general is what I'm really into.
I read a lot on topics like history, politics, and economics, with favorite authors being Rick Perlstein, Antony Beevor, Paul Krugman and Eric Foner. For fiction nothing beats mediocre detective novels. If it can be bought in an airport bookstore I want it.
I am pretty open to all types of music, but really enjoy jazz like Dave Brubeck and indie music like Brazilian Girls, Cansei de Ser Sexy, Eleanor Friedberger, or Broadcast.
