Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ich studiere Mathematik bei UC Berkeley.
Ich habe auch Philosophie und Musik gern.
Meine deutsche Vokabeln ist nicht so gross, aber naja, man soll
meine Englische "Self-Summary" lesen.
I am an applied mathematician, currently studying at UC Berkeley. I
sing. Mostly musical theatre and opera. I record as well but that
tends to be a different sort of music. I'm also a very mediocre
I'm highly interested in learning processes in understanding
mathematics and programming. I'm hopeful that my research will lead
to results that will outlive me, for that is the only immortality
available to me.
I write about the mentally ill and their perspectives to discourage
stereotypes and encourage mutual understanding. I am bipolar and I
am stable, so I'm not writing about some nebulous "other", I am
writing from my own experience. I write at
. I am working on starting a podcast on
the subject but just haven't gotten myself together for that
I am Curious, Contemplative, and Confused
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working on computer science stuff in Livermore and I love
Graduated and applying to grad school.
I hope to always have new things to learn and a constant stream of
ideas coming at me. I never want to quit intellectually, nothing
could bore me more than to be without intellectual
I may at some point perform in the opera at an amateur level (and
who knows, perhaps eventually professionally). I would be equally
interested in performing in musical theatre.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I really enjoy good conversation, my favorite endeavor is having
interesting conversations in a coffee shop, losing track of time
sometimes in the process. Though, to be honest, I prefer a beer
conversion to a coffee conversation
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is my red hair :P, and that I'm a bit on the nerdy side though this
isn't universally visible.
Occasionally my short term memory issues will show up. This
generally happens if there is a moderate amount of time between
talk and speak, or an interruption in a long sentence or just an
ungodly long sentence. I'll just have to ask what exactly I was
talking about before, and sometimes that will work.

Favorite Books: Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy (the whole set),
Les Miserables (no I have not read the unabridged), Crime and
Punishment (have read the unabridged), god is not Great, "God, no!"
by Penn Jillette. I really liked Rachel Maddow's book "Drift" that
came out recently. Hoping to go through "Rabies: A Cultural History
of a Disease" and the Hannibal Lecter series by Thomas
Currently Reading: Rabies A Cultural History of a Disease
Academic Books that brought great enjoyment (or semiacademic):
"Mindstorms" and "The Child's Machine" by Seymour Papert, "On
Killing" by Dave Grossman, "The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat"
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
music: meaning in music and how best to express that...
math, computer science, algorithms and math and science education
How to defeat math-phobia and programming-phobia in K-12 students.
I also work at finding out what process is invoked when kids learn,
or get confused. From that I hope to build computer tools to help
kids learn and minimize confusion, which I believe will lead to
more enjoyment and more people learning (failing in any subject can
induce a bias...)
I like when I get a chance to have an interesting conversation
about something I know very little about, gives me some new stuff
to think about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
thinking or having a good conversation
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't really know what to put here...
