I’m an author and professor in the Program in Human Dimensions of Organizations at the University of Texas at Austin and a Visiting Professor at the Center for International Education at Waseda University. I'm trained as an anthropologist and have spent about thirty years teaching and doing research related to Japan and to the ethics and culture of space exploration. I'm alsos a jazz drummer and perform with The Botolph Jazz Trio and The Keith Hasselbach Trio.

Please take a look at my books page for books scheduled to be published soon that are intended for general readers. My first mystery novel, The Blood of Gutoku, was published by Balestier Press in the autumn of 2021 and my strange mix of philosophy, anthropology, and personal memoir, Embracing Uncertainty: Future Jazz, That 13th Century Buddhist Monk, and the Invention of Cultures, was published by Sumeru Press in the summer of 2021.
