Life, liberty, and the pursuit of the KOMs

As often as I can get away from the lab, I like to ride my (road/mountain/Grandma's) bike. I ride rain or shine, hell or highwater -- whether it's in the parching heats of sultry Texas, or the blustering cold winds of the Midwest and the Eastern Seaboard (Texas, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey Rider here). Below is a screenshot of my recent activities summary.

Recent Readings

I support my local libraries and consistently get great books at ridiculously bargain prices from time to time. Below are a list of books in my current reading list collection. Perhaps, you would like to join me in my reading book club? Reach out.
