My self-summary
Hi there. My name (if you haven't figured it out) is Ben. I am a semi-nerdy but overly social guy who loves conversation. My life passions are music, science and math. I have hustled a way to get paid for the science and math part, leaving music to be my mistress.
What I’m doing with my life
I used to work on these robots: www.modsnake.com

I currently work for a startup using Robotics technology paired with Pixar quality animation/storytelling to entertain children. (www.toytalk.com) I spend a lot of my free time playing instruments (they clutter my apartment now). Been working on getting into shape recently, with fairly positive results.

Also ultimate frisbee (Go Disc Blocs!). I get to play with the UC Berkeley EECS Graduate IM team which is an amazing release from work.
I’m really good at
Jamming with people. That really applies both to music and random conversation. Intellectual conversations are great, and ridiculous inside jokes are awesome too. Lately I have been jamming with a group of Berkeley guitar / random other instrument players in the park behind my apartment
The first things people usually notice about me
I am loud and self confident. I also am pretty shameless when it comes to dancing, so no worries about awkward corner standing here. It takes longer for people to figure out that I am in fact a giant teddy bear.

My Teddy Bear!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What happiness is all about and how to maximize it. New hobbies to try, new restaurants to try. Sometimes I think about really deep stuff too, like the impact of technology on people and the future. Robots. I for one, welcome our new robot overlords.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out somewhere with friends, usually involving a sit down dinner and drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still love my teddy bear.
