My self-summary
"The pure present is an ungraspable advance of the past devouring the future. In truth, all sensation is already memory."

Love looking at stars, taking pictures of clouds, and long walks on the beach.

Food: Anything that involves a mix of unexpected ingredients that texture well together
I spend a lot of time thinking about
breaking down the artificial barriers we've erected around ourselves that prevent us from genuinely connecting with other human beings. The nexus of technology, society, public policy, and behavioral science. The word nexus. Obamacare.
On a typical Friday night I am
With friends in the city while discussing existential dilemmas and the meaning of life. Or visualizing social network dynamics in R. Fun times.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I lived in Chicago for a year, my best friend was a bipolar 74-year old Jewish physicist from the Bronx who had a breakdown at the age of 25 when he became an assistant professor at MIT and spent the next five decades itinerantly wandering. We would "shoot the shit" (his expression) most nights at the Hyde Park Dunkin Donuts into the wee hours of the morning. One day, I'll write a book about him.
