Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a little bit of an Odysseus - intellectual astronaut. Well
traveled in the fields of Science (theoretical physics) and
Technology (Software, Algorithms, Machine Learning, Data Science)
but heart belongs to the Arts (play guitar, very
interested/practiced in Fine Art). My journey has certainly had its
share of Wonders and of encounters with Monsters.
I am only second generation and have retained a great deal of
European attitudes and culture. I guess I was "predestined" to
clash with harsh Calvinist/Puritan America coming from a Catholic
upbringing (European aesthetics/assumptions/lifestyle are certainly
different than here.)
I am ~highly~ curious and spend a good amount of my time reading
and absorbing new ideas. I love adventures - especially travel and
have seen most of Western Europe and would love to start exploring
the East and North - as well as the rest of the world!
My mother and I have an excellent relationship.
My conflict with America

North America looked down upon art~~~~~, because they believed it
drew the faithful away from God, and if away from God, then it
could only lead to the devil.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have gone from a training in Theoretical Physics to work in
software and technology. I am transitioning back to more
mathematically intense work combining what I know in tech with a
deep interest in mathematics.
I spend four years as a full time real estate entrepreneur (and am
very proud of some of the houses I remodeled) but had to return to
work after the Crash. I am very interested in investing and
financial independence (and continue to work with a partner
attempting to execute various business ideas).
I have recently began playing guitar again and want to continue to
improve and evolve. I also love activities pertaining to the Visual

at a restaurant with someone interesting.
