My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I spent the first big chunk of my conscious life studying. About four years ago, I finished my PhD in linguistics. I worked with a startup for a while, co-founded one of my own, and have just joined a large company. I'm curious to see exactly how different that is.

I'm proud of my Hoosier roots and love my new Santa Monica home, but somehow I feel most myself when I'm traveling abroad, often in Germany. I'm happy most of the time. I like cats and dogs, but I don't have any pets at the moment. I was raised Catholic and still consider myself to be one, but I find that the moments I feel closest to God are when I'm sharing food and drinks and good conversation with good company. I'm not a vegetarian, but I try to limit myself to eating meat just twice a week.

My favorite word in the English language is "apparatus."

I am intelligent, kind, and loyal
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In 2010, I finished my Ph.D. at UCLA. While I studied and for a few years after I graduated, I worked for a small Santa Monica company developing a system for automated analysis of text. The system has been deployed for a variety of purposes, like evaluating the effectiveness of anti-depressants, generating leads for wealth-management companies, monitoring mergers and acquisitions, and reputation management.

I also co-founded a company that uses the technology from that company and adapts it for the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Bribery and Corruption markets.

In September 2014, I decided to get out of the startup scene and find something more stable, so I work for one of the big companies now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My job, for starters. Last time I picked up a clarinet, I played that pretty well, too---but it's been a while. I'm an excellent rummy player. I'm also very good at saying "thank you."
The first things people usually notice about me

I like to wear nice hats, and these get noticed. When I'm not wearing a hat, I don't know what gets noticed first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

10 movies I like a lot: Map of the Human Heart, Antonia's Line, Man Facing Southwest, Wings of Desire, Far Away So Close, Krull, Highlander, Repo Man, Friday, and Fifth Element.

Food? I love it all. Indian food maybe most of all, but Lebanese food is awesome as well. In Santa Monica, though, my favorite food comes from Fritto Misto.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How do people put their thoughts into words? I came up with an answer in my dissertation... I think it's on the right track.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have lived in a nudist colony, but do not currently lead a nudist life.
