My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm pretty laid back about life. 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've moved around a bit. I grew up on Long Island, did my undergrad in Chicago, lived in Northern California during grad school, and now back on the east coast. When people hear my accent they often struggle to place me. It's a little NY, a little Cali, a sprinkle Mid-West. Yes, I'm not so young anymore, but I still like the idea that I'll get to see more places, I want to live in a few more new exciting cities before I die, or at least travel a bunch. I think it's important to move around, it's expanded my view of life and the world.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a researcher at Yale working on the LUX experiment, which is 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. The profile picture is me in my mining gear. 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.
