I am a graduate student of anthropology in my early 30's focusing on community-based cultural tourism. I am from Philadelphia (U.S.A.) and I am married to Woods, who writes funny, scary, and affecting stories and sets them to punk/western/surf/folk music. I usually do not travel in comfort but I do travel well.
Update: I am in Tanzania for 10 months conducting research for my PhD in Cultural Anthropology. I'm the resident Mzungu in the mostly Maasai village of Longido, which is about 1.5 hrs north of Arusha. I'm writing about my experiences as a traveler in Tanzania and as a researcher trying to understand how the Maasai feel about cultural tourism in their village. Read on if you're interested in Tanzania, the Maasai, cultural tourism, ethnographic research, or me.
