My self-summary
After having completed my PhD program last year, I've rejoined the ranks of the 9-to-5-ers. I worked for five years before going back to school, so I was well-prepared. I do miss the openness of any given day, but do not miss the fact that you always felt like you should be working or researching. It's a trade-off.

Even though my career is very math-centric, the thing I get most excited about is a good story, be it a book, a movie, a play, or whatever. Theater has always been a hobby of mine, of the backstage variety mostly: stage managing, directing, playwrighting. I haven't been involved with it much since I moved out to California, though. It's tough to find a good group to work with, especially when it is only a hobby.

I'm originally from New England, being from Connecticut and then moving to the Boston area for college and stay there for my first job. I'm worried that I'm losing my New England hardiness, but the allure of the Bay Area weather pattern is pretty hard to pass up. Maybe my mind will change after I've lived through my first large earthquake.
What I’m doing with my life
My interest has always been in the art and science of decision making. My undergraduate work, my first job, and my PhD have prepared me pretty well I'd say. I'm currently a R&D scientist in this field at a small-ish company in SF and it's treating me well so far. (The freedom to work at home when necessary was a life-saver during the BART strikes.)
I’m really good at
The things that need to get done.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my hair. When I'm late in the haircut cycle, it's classic Jew-fro.

Also, my beard. I do keep it well-trimmed.
