Trying to be and not to be like this
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 soon, 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 and lying with numbers. At the end of the day, using data to
help folks make better decisions is surprisingly fulfilling for my
In my other
life -- I like to learn about, discover, and
make great food and drink. In the past couple of years, I've really
gotten into making liqueurs and bitters, and as a byproduct, into
mixing cocktails. One day, I'd love to be able to combine my work
life and my real life and 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 good bar / bar set
New places to explore
Flexibility and an open calendar
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I like to take it easy on Friday nights - dinner with a friend,
maybe a drink or two, catching up on whatever TV I've missed during
the week. Saturday and Sunday nights are reserved for family
dinners (for friends), experimental cocktails, and too many bottles
