"Painting is not made to decorate apartments. It is an offensive and defensive weapon against the enemy." - Pablo Picasso

A metaphor:

I'm not really sure how much you expect to find about my personal life on what is - in principle - a work-based webpage. But I will say this much: I enjoy traveling places.

Places like Yerkes Observatory, and classy parties at my friends' houses:

Also places like Utah and Wyoming:

And of course places like Corsica and the extreme northeastern corner of Chile:

Lastly, some life lessons:

1) don't ever compete with DJs, you will lose.

2) postal workers have a hard time.
