Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm into animation
of all sorts (I especially like
, and science
Here's an animation I created (it might make you smile):
And painting walls (one of my favorite things to do ever):
Hallway at The Living Gallery
I go to a weekly meditation group (in the tradition of Thich Nhat
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 pretty fun.
In college I studied computer science and psychology
. I focused on neuroscience
worked in a lab with zebra finches
, where I mostly
counted neurons (yes, it was a bit tedious).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Making art (paintings and animation). Earning money with
programming skills. Holding cats and petting dogs. Taking photos
and sometimes video. Meditating. Spending time with friends. Riding
my cheap bike. Learning cello.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Drawing my cartoons. Spotting interesting graffiti. Listening.
Computer stuff. Massage.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Big hair, big smile?
But besides that, I would guess my friendliness or my laugh. A nice
lady at work once told me I have an infectious laugh.

Music: Too much to list, really. Bach, traditional Indian, big band
and swing, old blues, hip-hop, weirdo classical (Philip Glass, Max
Richter)... For several years I was obsessed with Aphex Twin and
that kind of music.
Foods: Indian, Korean, Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Ethiopian
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I wouldn't want to do without human touch, friends, art, music, my
hands, and animals.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I should draw, paint, animate, and practice cello more. Also
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Often I meditate with a group, but sometimes I'll see a friend's
performance (and maybe document it in photos) or show my animation
somewhere or see a film. There are many options.
In Atlanta, I started a "drawing fun-time" night on Fridays with my
friends in which we gathered at one of our houses to sit around and
chat and draw- I love this and may attempt to recreate it in NYC.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

My left ear doesn't work so well- it can hear some low frequencies
but not much else. Being basically deaf in one ear makes sleeping
really easy, though.
