Here's an animation I created (it might make you smile):
And painting walls (one of my favorite things to do ever):
I worked at Google for a while and am glad to have escaped the cubicle. Now I'm at WFMU and love how non-corporate and off-beat it is, and I'm also grateful for more time for art.
I go to a weekly meditation group (in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh) and have started doing yoga recently. I like Dharma Punx too.
I prefer TED talks to television.
I love meeting people from other cultures and seeing the world outside of the US. I've mostly traveled to other countries for animation festivals which are mostly pretty fun.
In college I studied computer science and psychology. I focused on neuroscience and worked in a lab with zebra finches, where I mostly counted neurons (yes, it was a bit tedious).
Because I'm trained as a scientist (Richard Feynman and James Randi are heroes of mine and my dad is a statistician), I'm highly skeptical of ideas that lack evidence, but foremost I try to have compassion for everyone.
I really appreciate creativity.
