I teach Anthropology at Trinity College in Hartford, CT. When not teaching in Hartford, I like to spend my days in Skardu, chasing after snow leopards. I created Project Snow Leopard, an insurance scheme in several valleys of northern Pakistan that compensates farmers for goats killed by the big cats. It has saved the lives of between 25 and 40 snow leopards. I like chasing snow leopards as it takes me right in the heart of the some of the tallest mountains in the world.
