Minimalistic, understated, creative, and thoughtful.
Studied intelligence in undergrad, published research in neuroscience, and received a masters in medical science. All of which gives you a clue how my mind works.
What I’m doing with my life
Climbing too fast, telling cheesy jokes
, and coding up the software to power the data-driven education movement. A different direction given the academics listed (literally clicks away from med school), but a decision I'm continuously and immensely grateful of.
I’m really good at
being humble, doling sarcasm, recognizing irony, surpassing requirements, and making ice cream.
The first things people usually notice about me
Definitely my smile, provided I'm smiling.
