I'm an entrepreneur and a psychology researcher at a university in
Cambridge. Neither's made me rich just yet, but both make me happy.
What I’m doing with my life
Psychologist, consultant, entrepreneur. Professor eventually, or
perhaps I'll build companies instead. Either way, I'm convinced
science can be used to help make the world a better place.
I’m really good at
Playing the violin
Cutting to the heart of the matter
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea. Perhaps I'll send out a survey.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Many. For fiction, Kundera, Murakami, Bulgakov, Dostoevsky, Wilde
to name a few...
I come from a family of professional musicians, so if it sounds
good it is good. (Actually, that applies to other categories as
Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Arrested Development, The Wire, House of

The six things I could never do without
Food, Water, Air, A Towel

clinks or clanks a certain way, the tune changes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, chattering about some sort of nonsense.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask me anything: Lies are limitations.
You should message me if
there's anything you're wondering.
