My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just relocated to Chicago from Tucson at the beginning of August. Looking forward to learning more about this unfamiliar city of near-infinite neighborhoods! I'm pretty friendly. I have a dynamic personality and am interested in engaging with the world in different ways. I try to stay peaceful, open, outgoing, even while I'm inherently skeptical and tend to look at things through a lens of ironic humor. I'm brainy, but also adventurous, artsy, musical, and open to new philosophies. I used to play drums in a lot of different bands when I lived in NY and CA. Now I often travel to conferences + art events for my job. I've spent a lot of time in South Africa, where most of my family resides. I have a lot of interests-- including music, art, programming, and reading everything in sight. I like having good conversations.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an assistant professor of computer science with a research interest in data visualization. I'm also a media artist and spend a good amount of time designing interactive art installations.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I liked reading the biographies of the recent Fields medal winners in Quanta magazine. Before I got into programming and media arts I studied literature (ABD in contemporary poetics), mostly now I read (or at least skim) technical articles about data visualization and computer graphics. I still like (re-)reading Emily Dickinson's poems and finding the less famous Philip K. Dick's novels, and also the end-of-the-year collections with the best articles on new scientific discoveries. I sometimes have a bad habit of not finishing novels I start. I go through phases. Roberto Bolano's 2666. Simon Rich's story about the time-traveling pickle-maker. Looking for recommendations...!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Having my Gretsch drum kit nearby so that I can practice whenever and invite people to play music without too much hassle.

- Using my laptop to check craigslist for apartments and to make and edit an ever evolving list of things to do and to apply to.

- Unstuffing a soft-covered unlined sketchbook from my front pocket so that I can doodle to stave off ADHD when I'm in meetings longer than 10 minutes.

- Knowing that I have far-flung allies located in cities across America.

- Being near trees and especially parks with those mini exercise stations so that I can do a few pull-ups without having to go to the gym.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to use and abuse technology to make data more meaningful; where I can find a hill to go jogging in Chicago; Why every Thai restaurant on Yelp is rated 3-stars.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Wandering around the city, or maybe working on some sort of project or preparing for next week's class.
