So…about me. How much time do you have? Haha. Below are four different versions of my bio, depending on how much you want to read.
Please feel free to use any of these bios when you write about me or need to introduce me. (Ugh, what I just wrote sounds pompous. But you know what I mean. The bios are pre-packaged blurbs — useful if you’re introducing me as a guest speaker, a resource worth quoting, etc.) :)
