What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a (not-so) closet nerd, an aspiring points aficionado, a
plateau-ing boulderer, and an occasional artist. Someday, I'd like
to take a train across the US
I fell into data science over the past couple of years, which means
I spend my days at a not-so-startup startup moving bits of data
around to tell a story. At the end of the day, using data to help
folks make better decisions is really fulfilling, and I'm lucky to
have found it!
In my life outside of work -- I like to learn about and try my hand
at making food and drink (sometimes to great success!). In the past
couple of years, I've really gotten into making liqueurs and
bitters and, as a result, into mixing cocktails. One day, I'd love
to open a distillery, while using data to figure out how to make
better and more interesting spirits.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding awesome flight deals
Wanderlust + experience working on a flight search engine has made
one of my hobbies something super silly, but sometimes so useful.
Pretty frequently, I'll look up prices for flights -- sometimes, I
end up on impromptu trips when it's too good to pass up. In the
past year, I've gone off to Scandinavia, Colombia, and Mexico,
along with a bunch of places in the States!
MacGyvering my way to good food
In college, one of my residence halls didn't have a kitchen. An
induction stove + water bath + vacuum sealer and a box fan for an
exhaust formed the base of my guideline-violating in-dorm kitchen
for the year. Now, I'm trying to learn more diverse flavors by
cooking through my current Szechuan obsession, and probably
starting on Northern Thai food next.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
* My trusty bike
* Friends to feed, a kitchen to make said food, and wine to keep

* Flexibility and an open calendar

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Here's the thing (yep, this is my thing): I'm pretty comfortable
with where I am in life right now. I'm looking for the same: you
should love life and all that it has to offer. You should have lots
of stories to tell and new things to teach.
Or, you know, if you have an opinion on fried chicken in SF.
