|Dave Stocker is a 36 year old American who seems to have accidentally become a world traveler. He was an army brat who moved around the world quite a bit before his father retired from the service, ending on the “Jersey Shore” of New Jersey, were Dave spent his teens and early twenties. After getting his BS in Physics from Monmouth University (then Monmouth College) and a listless post graduation year, he headed of to grad school at Clarkson University in very rural, very cold and very empty northern New York to get a PhD in Biological Physics.
There he met a beautiful grad student from Germany and a few years later, found himself in an empty lab in Missouri with a wife and baby daughter in Germany. Soon thereafter, he found himself living in Germany and working as a developer for a large software vendor. Now, for the next year or so, he hinds himself in Bangalore, India; land of hippie inspiration and IT outsourcing.
Dave’s hobbies include mountain biking and long distance running. He once ran a marathon and plans never to do it again. He enjoys being an armchair designer of virtual worlds and actually partakes in trying his hand at creating hobbyist worlds; despite all of the warnings against it from experts. Lastly, he is an enthusiastic hiker and backpacker. This passion is a big part of the yay/nay decision about choosing a place to live. He is determined to hike in the Himalayas before leaving India.
