Hardcore urban cyclist (but not one of those jerks that run stoplights and signs willy-nilly. It's all about the Idaho Stop, yo)
Aside from class work and research, I volunteer for a nonprofit called Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW). I probably spend more time volunteering for ESW than I do on my grad work or trying to start my own companies.
I also burn time by going on moderately long biking trips and rock climbing. I might've logged 3000 miles over the last 12 months?
And on the more creative side, I'm working on becoming one with my camera (now on flickr!).
2. Scrabble (and apparently Bananagrams)
3. Parenthetical asides
4. French Toast
5. Curry Mashed Potatoes
An abridged list of media I love right now:
Legend of Korra
The New Girl
World War Z (book, not the movie)
Pop music (mostly the danceable portion)
The Omnivore's Dilemma
Game of Thrones
Terminator (1, 2, and the TV show)
This American Life
2. Someone to argue with
3. At least 3 different streaming services to watch my shows
4. Someone's coffee to taste only to spit out
5. My camera
6. A good wall to climb
Also, as of late, social justice, sex positivity, and political theory have become favorite tipsy topics of conversation.
You should also message me if you feel uncomfortable when white people use "woke".
