My self-summary
I love cycling, architecture, computer science, cognitive science, data visualization, and ultimate. I enjoy puns (good and bad), taking pictures around the city, sciencey things, tossing a disc, and learning about everything.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working at a startup doing data visualization, taking a semester break from a PhD in computer science. I have an undergraduate degree in architecture that I would like to put to good use one day. I worked at an architecture firm for three years, and designed a building in that time. Seeing it completed is an amazing feeling, and something I would definitely like more of, I'm just not done exploring other occupations yet.

I'm fairly new to SF, and as everyone here does, I've fallen in love with the city. I managed to find a kickass apartment, but I don't seem to spend much time in it. I bike absolutely everywhere I go (cars are not my thing) and when I'm alone I don't have the patience for public transportation.
I’m really good at
Fixing and building things. I love problem solving and design. My absolute favorite part of my job is finding/creating the perfect visualization for data with interesting structures. Also, I ride a unicycle pretty well.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall with red hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Through the Language Glass, Javascript the Good Parts, Goedel Escher Bach
Movies: Moonlight Kingdom, Matrix, Serenity
Music: Infected Mushroom, Beats Antique, Active Child
Food: Indian, Thai, Italian, Ice cream
The six things I could never do without
1. Internet
2. Bicycles
3. Eyesight
4. Good food, especially Indian
5. Artwork
6. Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Human perception and experience. I love learning and thinking about how the human brain works, and how that impacts what we think of the world around us. For me, architecture is a critical component in the experiences we have. Decisions made by a designer somewhere have huge impacts on the routines we have, the activities we do, and even the thoughts we think. I'm not currently doing architecture, but I plan to return there someday, and the things I've learned about perception and cognition will definitely be a part of it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Biking SF; Critical Mass, Bike Party, or just riding around wherever I feel like it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really miss my dad.
