My self-summary
I'm into animation, art of all sorts (I especially like street art), documentary films, cello, meditation, compassion, taking photos, and science.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
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
Drawing my cartoons. Spotting interesting graffiti. Listening. Computer stuff. Massage.
The first things people usually notice about me
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.

I actually have a blog on which I write about documentaries that I like: docsofnote.blogspot.com

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
I wouldn't want to do without human touch, friends, art, music, my hands, and animals.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I should draw, paint, animate, and practice cello more. Also sex.
On a typical Friday night I am
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.
