My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"The pure present is an ungraspable advance of the past devouring the future. In truth, all sensation is already memory."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love writing and understanding people's stories. My happiest moments are usually when I'm reading a book, or when I click with another person, or when I'm staring at the stars on a dark night, or watching the sun set into the Pacific Ocean. I love being by myself, but at times, I also enjoy feeling less alone.

I have a love/hate relationship with technology. My master's is in statistics and I also spent a year in a neuroscience Ph.D. program before peacing out.
These days, I'm a data scientist at a tech company and work at the intersection of statistics and human behavior.

But can everything really be quantified? Is the singularity real and will our brains be uploaded into quantum computers so we can be immortal? Is it better to have 600 Facebook friends than to have 3 real friends? When a girl Snapchats me a duckface selfie captioned "selfie for you!", is it really just for me?

These are the kinds of questions that keep me up at night.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
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
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
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
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
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.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Intelligence counts for a lot. Someone who views the world with a wide-eyed sense of wonder, who loves learning new things, someone in love with language and nuance and multiple layers of meaning. Be someone who reads. Have a wide variety of interests. Few things are as disappointing as super smart people with a highly narrow sphere of interest in the world. Believe in something bigger than yourself. Want to become a better person. Be skeptical - of rote memorization, yes, but also of modernity and liberalism and technology. Be passionate and assertive when you need to be, but also don't be afraid to be shy, to feel butterflies in your stomach while you read this, to blush a little.
