Extracurricular Activities

I do have interests outside the office and the classroom (don't tell my students). I sing and I draw when nobody is looking, and when I can find the time I tailor clothes and go hillwalking. I am also trying to develop my understanding of typesetting and of whisky (for which I founded an appreciation society in Pittsburgh in 2013).
