The canyon is approximately 24 miles (39 km) long, between 800 and 1,200 ft (240 and 370 m) deep and from .25 to .75 mi (0.40 to 1.21 km) wide.

Story
Tagline
Entrepreneur
Introduction
An entrepreneur who has set up and run businesses on almost every continent. Passionate about working in emerging markets and driving results. My technical expertise lies in managing website optimization with a focus on data driven results. I have a strong background in applied statistics from my PhD studies and recently filed a patent relating to e-commerce optimization processes.   

Led the development of over 100 websites since 2003 resulting in 150 million+ page views. Moved to India in 2006 to expand my existing US based internet business where I bootstrapped my own business from 3 employees to over 80 employees. I am an avid traveler and have to been to over 45 countries.

Completed a PhD in Paleoclimatology from Ohio State in 2009 where I studied the history of El Nino events for the past 1000 years based on ice core records. 

Bragging rights
Spent 3 weeks working with an international team at 6200m on the top of Corapuna in Peru to bring a 150m long ice core back to Ohio State for research
