I grew up in Maryland, Indonesia and Australia. I've been to India close to 30 times in my life, where Bangalore is basically my technical home. I graduated from university in Boston and have been living in the Washington area since graduation. I've done it all in D.C., too - worked at bars (as a bouncer, no less), arts & cultural nonprofits, and government consulting firms.
I have a strong aesthetic sense and like to surround myself by beautiful things: my bicycles, art, furnishings, people.
I find beauty in: americana, dachshunds, indianness, medium format cameras, cars and bicycles, late nights, elegant prose, house parties, new wave music, backpacking, museums, uncertainty, abstract tasks, shows, good pens, the outdoors, whiskey, documentaries, tolerant people, spicy food, music festivals.
I dislike: winter nights, last call, saying goodbyes, cheap wine, stasis, contemporary pop music, obsessive materialism, wanderlust, boring clothes.
