Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a smart, health-conscious guy. Most of the time I love my job;
I'm very fortunate in that regard.
We're in the midst of winter, so my beard has come back. It's my
favorite winter running accessory. The farmers' markets are less
colorful than they were during the summer and fall. I've come to
love root vegetables, so I still enjoy shopping at Union Square
through the winter and the meals prepared from what I find there.
I'm also enjoying the jams I canned during the summer.
I miss baseball season, but am still relishing the miracle that the
Giants pulled off. I'm enjoying various cultural events...The
Matisse Cut-Outs, The Garden of Unearthly Delights...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a molecular biologist working on the pre-clinical side of HIV
vaccine development. I cut and paste DNA; I don't handle patient
I'm trying to be more of a locavore. I've been shopping a the
Greenmarkets during the summer for years, but last summer decided
to make more of a commitment to local food by canning the local
stuff to have over the winter rather than shop at WholeFoods. I
didn't completely succeed, but did pretty well.
I’m really good at

my job, analytical yet creative. I'm also a good cook. The greatest
gift I received from my grandmothers was their nurturing my love
for cooking. I believe that cooking, like many things in life, is
best as a shared activity despite the cramped quarters found in
most Manhattan kitchens.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I enjoy listening to music (mostly jazz, some classical), attending
modern dance performances (Mark Morris, Garth Fagan, Pilobolus,
DanceBrazil), and wandering through museums. I like going to
lectures at AMNH and NYAS.
I enjoy old movies: Sunset Boulevard, Double Indemnity, It Happened
One Night, The Lost Weekend... Recently enjoyed Boyhood
(incredible), The Imitation Game, and Madame Satan (1930, a
I like to read, though mostly I'm reading things that are work
related. When I get a chance, I like science fiction...Margaret
Atwood, Kim Stanley Robinson, William Gibson. I recently enjoyed a
collection of F. Scott Fitzgerald short stories.
Going with the locavore theme, I like my own cooking. I'm tending
towards simple meals made from whatever happens to be in season.
Winter is here in a big way, nearly a foot of snow on my block.
I've been enjoying some of the things I canned last summer:
asparagus, snap peas, green beans... I'm looking forward to baking
pies with the sour cherries I froze away. I don't do well with
spicy food. I suspect a weird capsaicin receptor allele because I
think sweet paprika is hot; most things you'd find pleasantly hot,
I'd find extremely painful.
