My self-summary
I'm pretty laid back about life (though I admitted get totally stressed out about work regularly). I don't mind having a quite night at home, nor do I mind being out all night, I prefer to just go with the flow. I love games of all sorts. Board games, card games, video games, the more complicated the better. I love philosophical/political arguments, assuming they can be civil and productive (harder than it sounds). I like to explore and just discover my surroundings.

I enjoy listening pod casts. Every week I look forward to hearing Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me and Snap Judgements. I also enjoy traveling a lot. I like to see new cities and find what is unique there. Also, somehow other countries have better food than the US, just sayin'.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a researcher at Lawrenece Berkeley National Laboratory working on a direct search for dark matter. I can talk you ear off about what dark matter is and how one looks for it, but do you seriously want to read about that in my profile? Yeah, thought so.

The cool part is the experiment takes place one mile underground in an old gold mine. I love my job but it requires me to solve problems and constantly adapt, always having to learn something new. I hope those two things can always be apart of my work, otherwise I'd just get bored.

I'm a problem solver, that's what I do for a living.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Food, water, and shelter, the rest? Optional.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-So, what would it take to have fewer drone strikes and less invasionmof privacy?

-Am I really making myself useful by studying sutff most people have never heard of?

-Is it just me, or does our society really encourage people to see everything in black and white?

-Will there be gamer retirement communities when I'm old?

-What is the optimal tax system? Could a VAT seriously work?

-So, how many more years until Tom Brady retires?
On a typical Friday night I am
Hopefully playing board games somewhere or out at the bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I thoroughly enjoy getting lost, it's an adventure.
