I actually live in Benicia, but I'm a graduate student at UCD and I spend most of my time there these days. However, I'm currently an intern in DC.
I aspire to be an infinite heat sink. One of my greatest pleasures is being covered in a pile of hot, clean laundry straight from the dryer. Someday, I hope that I will benefit humanity by being part of a fantastic super-computer. Maybe I'll have to settle for giving massages.
I grew up in New York and graduated from its suicide-fabled land grant institution. Most of my closest friends are physicists on PhD tracks, although I spend most of my own time in the humanities. Richard Feynman is one of my heroes. After college, I lived in Boston for a few years and tortured law students for a living. Don't take that too literally. Law students are tons of fun. Being the ABA's mercenary let me entertain folks on weekends and take up a six month gig at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
I currently live in the bay-ish area, although I often give in to my wanderlust. I recently obtained a master's degree in library science and I'm working on obtaining the matching Juris Doctor from UCD. I'm also a certified massage therapist in California, although I rarely practice professionally these days.
Since I have now received over thirty messages regarding one of my pictures, I'll state something about it in this profile.
No, they are not tattoos. :)
For those who have seen the pictures of four girls together with physics on their back: those pictures are unedited from a poster shoot, and weren't supposed to be used or sold outside a specific audience. The pictures were fodder for what was originally a limited edition poster engineered by aphysicist28. This was waaay back when all the folks involved were in school together. After the photographer decided to sell his raw photography on cafepress (as physchicks2), the original cafepress link became public. If you really enjoy the picture, you can pick up the poster at http://www.cafepress.com/PhysChicks and be happy. //That ends what I have to say.
I am inquisitive, innovative, and impractical
