I try to make kindness, openness, rationality, and altruism central to who I am. A friend said about me: "Brian is honestly the sweetest person I've ever met. He has a genuine love for everyone, regardless of their flaws. His friendliness and sense of humor put people at ease, and he'll listen to anything without judgment."
I graduated from Swarthmore College in 2009 with a major in computer science and a minor in statistics. I enjoy geeky academic subjects of all sorts: neuroscience, physics, mathematics, psychology, economics, philosophy.
My life goal is to reduce suffering in the most cost-effective ways possible, a theme evident in the following links:
* An interview with me
* Academic website
* Philosophical website

I have decided not to have children because I would rather use the time and money required to raise them on activism and research instead. Still, feel free to message me if you’d like to be friends regardless of whether you want to have kids. :)
