I study English and political science at St. Mary's College of Maryland. In my spare time, I make digital noise about 3D printers, rhetorical devices, national security disclosures and the written word. Also Scandinavian folk music. Oxford is in the archives. Sometimes I travel and blog about it.

Currently hanging out at the Hlueluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve.

The site of Nelson Mandela’s grave in Qunu.
Sunset in Bulungula, the tiniest village imaginable, on the Indian Ocean.

Me and a random chameleon at a restaurant in Graaff-Reinet. Good times.

Observing a penguin colony at Boulder National Park, near Cape Town.

A rugby match between the Cape Town Stormers and the Durban Cheetahs (the home team won by a landslide).

Dr. Charles Musgrove, tenured professor at St. Mary’s College.

Total pandemonium at the Rhodes Memorial, which was windy.

Frolicking through the Kerstenbosch Botanical Gardens in a total downpour.
