and amicable. Chatty and slightly ridiculous. Curious and creative.
Perceptive. Peaceful. Learning and exploring life. I have a polar

- Cooking and eating a cow's tongue.
- Organizing and winning a human Hungry Hungry Hippos
- Reassembling a broken car with clothes hangers.
- Getting a tree dropped on my head.
- Baking brownies in a clay oven.
- Scaring the hell out of a horror-tour tour guide.
- Conducting a legitimate research project about people stealing
- Rafting the Nile. Twice.
- Driving the entirety of Route 66.
- Driving the entirety of the I-5.
- Using seaweed-flavored toothpaste for a month.
- Doing my laundry a couple times.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I do a lot of research in Africa, mostly to do with crowd-sourcing
using mobile phones. I just started such a project this summer with
UNICEF in Uganda and I'm super excited about it (!!!).
I also do some research in civic engagement-type stuff and how
social structures like ethnicity or language affect local activism
and interpersonal trust.
Most of my research involves Chipotle burritos.

Lately I've been having a lot of fun going back to some of my
favorite classics like Arthur Conan Doyle (p.s. If you haven't seen
his Wikipedia picture, you need to) and Robert Louis Stevenson
stuff. Also I'm a huge classic noir junkie (esp. Chandler or
Wes Anderson (Tenenbaums is my fave). Also Soderbergh, Coen
Brothers, and anything Miyazaki.
On the darker side, Scorsese and Kubrick. Also a little dark comedy
-- Edgar Wright and Guy Ritchie.
"You've got red on you ..."
Changes by the day, but right now I'm listening to a lot of Above
& Beyond, Super8 & Tab, Mat Zo, Cloudkicker, and Scale the
Heavy doses of jazz, esp. Kenny Burrell and Bill Evans.
And the classics: Beatles, Eagles, Clapton, Elton, CSNY, and
Fleetwood Mac to name a few.
