Look this isn't a great time for live performances - but there is a fair amount in the works that I can't announce just yet. Check back here in a while, or better yet follow me on Twitter or sign up to my newsletter. The "Research" tab also shows when I'm talking about my work, which you might like to tune into. Looking forward to sharing with you.
