My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My life revolves around a strong desire to understand things intimately. I realize not everyone has this desire, and I feel very fortunate to have it. If someone tells you that gravity is the reason you stick to the floor, does that explanation satisfy you if you don't legitimately understand what gravity is? I think the experience of life itself is pretty novel. It amazes me how many people out there complain about the ennui of day-to-day life when it's chock-full of so many mysteries.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After daydreaming about doing this for a couple years now, I'm back in school for electrical engineering. I make a living as a composer and classical piano teacher. I could teach you how to play a Chopin étude if you so desired: silverlakepianolessons.com

In my free time I lead tours at Mount Wilson Observatory -- I can proudly say I'm the youngest docent there. I'm also a big fan of being outdoors and enjoy long hikes and long-distance running.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
When I was a little girl, I remember walking through the Getty and being mesmerized by an oil painting of two women dressed as if they were from ancient Greece. What blew my mind about it was how realistically everything was executed. How could somebody throw some paint on a canvas so skillfully that my brain sees life-like human skin? How could the fabric of the women's dresses be painted in such a way that I believe it to be sheer and transparent with that same life-like skin showing through underneath? There was also a tiger skin settled on a hunk of marble, and you could easily imagine what these materials would feel like if you were to touch them -- everything was painted that well. I wanted to know how on earth any one person within their lifetime could achieve such mastery. Then I thought to myself, "this person's a human being just like me… there's no reason why I shouldn't be able to do this, too. There's gotta be a trick to this…" That attitude has led me to become a pretty decent painter among other things. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

A love for Chekhov actually led me to a BA in Russian language and literature from UCLA -- pretty impractical, I know, but I LOVED every minute of obtaining it, and I'm not in any school debt as a result. While people often associate Russian writers with giant tomes of novels, I've always loved short stories the most. I think writing a good short story takes a tremendous amount of skill. When you have so little time to tell your story, every little bit of it has to be gold.

While I really enjoy watching films with good company, I'm otherwise not much of a movie or television person. I don't own a tv set, and my friends make fun of me for never knowing who actors are.

As far as music goes, I probably own the biggest classical record collection out of anyone you'll ever meet. While Bach will always be my #1, my musical tastes definitely span beyond just classical… I've got a special place in my heart for Tommy James and the Shondells, Chris Spedding, The Associates, Pearls Before Swine, and Bill Fay to name a few.

My favorite foods are Indian, Thai, sushi, and Mexican. I used to be a pretty austere vegetarian. While I no longer have any food restrictions, I still eat vegetarian most of the time.
