Former computer scientist, turned professional poker player, turned hedge fund risk manager. I am currently an analytics junkie, rec basketball league all-star rebounder, and a knowledge sponge.
I love learning, long dinners and debates with friends, music, open minded people, and the Oxford comma. I believe people are basically good, the ability to science is one of our greatest superpowers, and that feedback is a gift.
I want to live a healthy and happy life, and I am at my best when I am creating simple solutions for complex puzzles. I care a lot about financial literacy, and a long-term goal of mine is to help create products and ideas that will de-mystify that entire world and make it easier for everyday people to make sound financial decisions. I will be phenomenal at it.
Books - Sapiens, by Yuval Noah Harati, Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman, Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely
Music - Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chromeo, Tantric, Ace of Base, Madonna, and Three Doors Down. There are tons of others, but those are the ones that came to mind immediately... I've won "Most Eclectic" on Spotify numerous times.
Food - Yes.
I love television, board games, dinners, and philosophical debate.
I could also be eating pizza and writing code.
You think it is completely reasonable that I chose not to list all of my travel destinations on my profile to look sophisticated.
