Picture of the Yarra river at night in Melbourne, Australia.
What a wild weekend it’s been. Getting to spend time in Melbourne with Tim Klapdor, Jim Groom, Rowan Peter, Joyce Seitzinger, & Mark Smithers has been a blast.

By |June 20th, 2017|blogs, cte|

Man visible through window, standing in a falling apart shed that's in a field with mountains in the background.
Life has accelerated astronomically since my first #domains17 post, so I haven’t finished the other writing I was working on since I’m now headed to Australia for a short-term job.
