Like Sir Richard Francis Burton—explorer, ethnologist, cartographer, philologist, and translator of the One Thousand and One Nights—I am a human being. I was born in the Canadian prairies, grew up on the northern coast of Chile, and completed my undergraduate education at the University of British Columbia.
