I am: the son of immigrant parents, of which I am occasionally
reminded; a brother to a former presidential scholar, peace corps
volunteer, and americorps volunteer who is currently in training to
save the world; fascinated with both people and particles;
attempting to work for the public good through the private sector;
an enthusiastic athlete and a capable teacher; endlessly curious; a
great friend; and of course modest.
I'm constantly on a path of self-discovery and I'm learning new
things about myself and the world around me all the time.
I can be both extroverted and misanthropic. People bring me my
greatest joys as well as most of my eye-rolling experiences, but on
the balance I like spending time with others.
I am mercurial, perceptive, and hilarious
What I’m doing with my life
Social justice, sports, and nerd stuff.
I’m really good at
Getting along with people, analyzing (like everything, and maybe
too much), finding humor in any situation, talking with folks,
playing sports and I suppose math.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall, foreign looking, depending on the mood either stoic or
really social, and once they get to know me, that I'm really
unassuming and open minded.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: 1984, The Phantom Tollbooth, Catch-22
Movies: American History X, Pi, Empire Records, The Good Shepherd,
a sexual harassment training video featuring a young and
underemployed Wesley Snipes
Music: I love all music except for that which I deem without soul
or imagination, and that goes on a case by case basis.
Foods: I'm not picky. I love it all. I just don't want to have the
same thing too often.
The six things I could never do without
Human contact, physical activity, good music, good food, a place to
retreat from the world, and new experiences.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The line between ironic and genuine appreciation.
On a typical Friday night I am
Movie, concert, or just hanging out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to make homophobes uncomfortable.
