My name is Andrew Jaramillo, but most people call me Drew. I am originally from California, in particular the San Joaquin Valley. I lived for about ten years in the Bay Area and three of those years were in San Francisco. For my PhD, I moved to Santa Barbara California. I am currently a visiting assistant professor at the University of Connecticut. I haven’t been in New England for very long though I do like it and have found it very pleasant.

I have many hobbies, certainly more than I should. These include playing guitar, traveling, going for walks, cooking, collecting comics, reading science fiction novels (especially Kurt Vonnegut), and growing orchids (though I don’t grow too many orchids in Connecticut).
