Now, I'm in new york working for an investment bank, and am much happier. There were things that I loved about academia, but in the end, I think it's probably better that I'm working somewhere where getting the math right has a bit more of an impact than it did when I was calculating the thermal conductivity of a hypothetical conformal fluid.
Outside of work I love all things dance. This is a relatively recent realization for me. Seeing ballet, taking tango lessons, and now I'm even learning foxtrot and waltz. The exercise value is marginal, but there's something about the movement, especially with a partner, which, when done correctly, is like no other feeling I've felt.
