When I am not working on my research or teaching, I compete in endurance events. So far, I have completed 2 full ironman distance triathlons (Vineman Full and Ironman Canada), numerous marathons including the LA marathonand Malibu marathon and many other shorter distance running events and triathlons.
Other than sports, traveling is another passion of mine. I have travelled all across southern Africa including Mozambique, Malawi, South Africa, many countries in Europe, Australia, Singapore, and other regions. I also love to read a good book, cook, and taste our great Central California wines.
