My self-summary
Coffee or nap?
What I’m doing with my life
This year I'll be directing the creation of a science center at a community college. It's geared towards motivating underprivileged youth to enter the STEM fields and exit successfully. I'm also taking classes at UIC in preparation for a Master's in Power Engineering with a focus on renewable energy production.
I’m really good at
... meaningful conversation

... math, science, political-economy, philosophy and music adventures

... honesty (concentration too high for general consuption)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Any tragic comedy

Music: I enjoy most genres with meaningful lyrics (e.g. indie, classical, punk, metal, jazz, ska, blues, folk, bluegrass) but currently these are on heavy rotation:
-Andrew Bird, Tame Impala, Grizzly Bear, Modest Mouse, Deer Tick (basically any band with an animal in the name)
-Beirut
-Parquet Courts
-Astronauts (must hear)
-Wye Oak
-Kings of Convenience

Books:
-Collapse: How Societies Choose to Succeed or Fail
-The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Help Determine Human Values

Entertainment:
-Daily Show
-Louis CK
-Rick and Morty (youtube: Rick and Morty You Pass Butter)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Science, technology, the multiverse, civilizations, evolution, how humanity will be remembered far into the future, information and social justice
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, studying, coding, out for dinner or at a show (indie, punk, metal, jazz, blues, ska)
