Outside of work I play all sorts of music. I am starting a new band that will be a crazy mix of live electronics, percussion, and singing. I've played in Brooklyn noise-punk bands, a gamelan group and a taiko group in Japan. I DJ sometimes and also play classical piano and acoustic guitar to chill out.
I love traveling and have spent a bit of time abroad - highlights include Japan, India, The Philippines, Argentina, Romania, Germany, China. I have a longer list of countries I'd still like to visit.
I like to try new things and I am impressed with how active people are in the Bay Area. Things I've tried since moving here: climbing, breakdancing, capoeira, and parkour. Kite boarding is next on the list. I also ride a bike in the city and go snowboarding a few times each winter.
