Computer scientist who's also into athletics, singing, theater, and yoga. I try to be present with my family and friends, with the adventure in our lives. I like to dance.
I love being an uncle many times over, but I have no kids of my own. Last summer I took my oldest nephews backpacking in Desolation Wilderness, super fun to see it through their eyes.
I've been east to Palmyra, west to Kashmir, and many places in between. Grilled fish at the night market, yum. Crushed ice pineapple drink from a street vendor in Kerala, uh, be careful :)
I like haskell, sweet potatoes, settlers, xkcd, words, and a good burrito from Taqueria Cancun.
All the stuff on this profile is true.
What I’m doing with my life
I write code while reciting Shakespeare in downward dog.
I’m really good at
Meeting people and remembering them.
The first things people usually notice about me
People usually hear me coming, often from my laugh, or perhaps I'm singing: my voice can carry.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Like any self-respecting bleeding-heart liberal, I consume the New York Times and the New Yorker regularly. Some random recent books: Ready Player One, The Boys in the Boat, All the Light We Cannot See, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up :)
Lots of rooms in the house of music. Sirius XMU, Jazz Cafe, 80's night, Steve Reich and Arvo Part, Met Live Broadcasts, classic prog, trance, edm, and ofc the opera and classical I sing myself...
Up for the SF Playhouse, the Marsh, ODC, Berkeley Rep, the symphony, the operaaaah! Secret tip: National Theatre Live at the Kabuki. Did you see Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play at ACT?! crazy!
The six things I could never do without
my family, cousins, nieces, and nephews
the joy of creation in engineering and art
the experience of the wider world
the steep part of the curve
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be present, open, and intentional.
On a typical Friday night I am
Let X = X.
You should message me if
You have a nerd passion and can laugh about it.
