My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am constantly trying to evolve as a person and in my interests (my life has taken multiple sharp turns over the past few years).

I like meeting new people, I feel that through interacting with other people we bring out the best in ourselves, and discover new interests and hobbies.

Recently I had to give up all alcohol for health reasons, which sucks, but I still enjoy going out, but now I'm always the designated driver (in my Prius).

I am extremely liberal, and very serious about it.

I am thoughtful, clever and witty
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am in my second year as a PhD student at Stanford studying Finance, but don't worry, not the douchey kind, my two main research areas are behavioral finance (how people make financial decisions with an eye towards improving them) and banking regulation (fighting against the banks of course). I'm currently working on research that I hope will help end high frequency trading.

For four years before starting my PhD I was working outside DC at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, and for the four years before that I was at Penn State earning a BS in Electrical Engineering.

Since moving out here I've been trying to take full advantage of the area by getting more into yoga, rock climbing and hiking (always looking for a partner for such adventures!)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Climbing trees.

Making inappropriate jokes with impeccable timing.

Mathy stuff.

Video games. Especially old-school games, like SMB3 and Goldeneye (which i guess is more medium-school than old-school). Mario Kart, specifically Double-Dash for the Gamecube.

Oh, and Rock Band. Specifically the Beatles version, I do main vocals and guitar simultaneously, which is quite the sight to see, especially when I'm off by an octave or three. Dance Central, which is crazy fun.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm going to forgo the obvious (friends, family) and literal (food, oxygen, etc) answers.

1. The contents of my entertainment unit (Yes, this is a cheap way of cramming TV, DVDs and video games all into one entry)

2. The gym, but especially yoga and rock climbing

3. My iPhone

4. Music, especially concerts

5. Peanut butter

6. The Internet, obviously
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If I were sent back in time, how much math/science could I convey to the people of the time. And how would far would this would advance technology. This is why I learned latin. Could I really teach calculus to ancient Rome, or re-invent steam technology? This is what keeps me up at night.

Lately I have also been thinking about information theory and evolution mechanics, specifically the gene-centered perspective, since I think that can help in understanding our behavioral quirks.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends on the time of year. If it's in the middle of the quarter, then I could be in me cube working. If I'm not buried under problem sets then hanging with friends, going out to bars/clubs, and concerts. During the summer though I make it up to SF much more frequently, exploring the night scene up there.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Despite the seeming impossibility of this statement, I have
actually forgot how to ride a bike.
