PhD candidate, University of Canterbury

I'm originally from Philadelphia in the States where I went to school for Geology and Writing. I currently study earthquakes (old ones and new ones) and landscape evolution at the University of Canterbury under Mark Quigley. Give me cricket, ice hockey, a guitar, some rocks to look at, a paper an pen, and I'll be a happy dude. Food and beer helps, too.
