I feel really lucky, because grad school was such long, creeping, ceaseless degradation of all that is good–and I was worried that staying in the same field for a postdoc, I was in for more of the same. But everything’s been incredibly good at my new job - - the people, freedom, challenges, travel opportunities...
I’m pretty energetic, and been loving the bottomless rewards of exploring this area –
My favorite things at the moment are the coastal redwood parks, single track biking, indoor rock climbing, and trying out new hole-in-the-wall restaurants. I've been trying out West coast swing and waltz lessons recently.
I’m good at making plans, then goading/wheedling/cajoling others to come along.
I think I value considerateness/empathy above most qualities. I think I’m a good listener, and I think its it’s own reward to see if I can understand the people around me.
