My self-summary
I grew up in the suburbs of Boston, went to college in Rhode Island (and Barcelona), and wanted to try living somewhere different. Through a somewhat arbitrary process, that ended up being Philadelphia.

I once hiked 18 miles in the wrong direction in a foreign country and had to hitchhike to get back home.
What I’m doing with my life
I have been working in Philadelphia for the past few years. During the day I work for a group that advises on the implementation and financing of transportation and infrastructure projects. On the side, I perform statistical (econometric) analysis for NFL teams. Most people are way more interested in the latter job.

Outside of work, I try to get involved in different side projects, although I spend a fair amount of my time relaxing and using the internet as a time warp. I might be addicted to Bad Lip Reading videos on YouTube. Recently, I've been taking some statistics courses and getting back into running. I started running about nine years ago by banditing the Boston Marathon, so it's been a goal of mine to time-qualify for that at some point.

Other than that, I am trying to figure out what I want to do next in terms of work or pursuing grad school (currently leaning toward grad school).
I’m really good at
Sleeping. Seriously. I get over eight hours a night, although that's more a reflection of a fortunate work schedule.

Public speaking. For whatever reason, I find it more enjoyable than nerve-wracking to speak in front of crowds. I'm pretty sure I'm in the minority on that.

Writing. I don't do it as much vocationally anymore, but I think it would be ideal to write long-form nonfiction pieces.
The first things people usually notice about me
Beats me, but people tell me I have a good radio voice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: All the King's Men, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Catch-22.

TV: Growing up, I watched The Simpsons religiously back when it was funny (pre-2001). I haven't gotten around to it yet, but I hear The Wire is mandatory viewing.

Movies: Pulp Fiction, The Shawshank Redemption, Memento. As I think about this it seems like this list hasn't changed much since high school.

Music: I don't feel that much attachment to any particular genre, but I like hearing new stuff.

Food: I like all types of food, but if I had to eat one dish every day for the rest of my life it would be falafel. As an aside, I think knowing how to cook is one of the most useful skills one can have.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How absurd clothes must seem to every other animal.

Also, food.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hopefully not working. I've been traveling a lot on weekends recently, but if not I am probably hanging out at home or going out with my friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't know if it's that private, but I once traveled to Costa Rica with the sole intent of going to a sloth sanctuary.

When I was four years old, I would dress up in a lion costume every day. My parents tell me I would spontaneously jump on top of tables and belt out "If I were King of the Forest".
