My self-summary
I just moved to California, and I'm feeling kinda optimistic about it. I didn't come here with big dreams of making it in the entertainment industry, but I think the relaxed pace of life and the general emphasis on health and well-being out here will be good for me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm originally from the Chicago area. I moved to Delaware to get my Master's, then I spent a few months in NYC. These days, I'm doing data science, helping create a start-up, exploring LA, forcing myself to exercise and eat healthy, and trying to find my niche here.
I’m really good at
* Asking questions that matter.
* Math-related stuff.
* Planning a trip.
* Reciting obscure and boring trivia.
The first things people usually notice about me
One of my friends told me that the rhythm of my speech is a bit like ... Jeff Goldblum.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: David Bowie just died, and it reminded me of a story. One time, I was at a friend's apartment back in Delaware, and I forced him to listen to Station to Station from start to finish while we both finished a bottle of wine. Good times.

If you go to Bowie's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame these days, the remembrances (cards, candles, flowers) that people leave there keep getting cleaned up, but new ones keep getting put there. I like to go there from time to time, because each time I go, it looks totally different.

Books: I spend way too much time reading textbooks, and articles from Reddit. I really should read more fiction. I feel a bit uncultured in that way. Reminds me how i used to ride the subway in NYC, and I was shocked to find so many people reading books! Like, actual, physical books instead of just whatever on their cell phone or e-reader.

Shows: I really like comedy. In Chicago, there's a huge improv comedy scene, and it's starting to leak out to the coasts. I'm looking forward to visiting some of the venues out here on the west coast (several of which are just duplicates of what you can find in Chicago or New York).

Food: I'm fairly open to new cuisines. I really like how dinner at a Korean restaurant has so many side-dishes.

Movies: I really want to see The Big Short in the near future.
Six things I could never do without
* My sister's artwork.
* My passport (I need to renew it soon. Remind me.)
* The internet.
* Questions.
* A sense of order.
* My camera.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
* planning the next day trip.
* the wise thing to do vs. what I actually want to do.
* what's on Reddit right now.
On a typical Friday night I am
* Stealing one of the letters from the Hollywood sign. (Can you guess which one?)
* Making spraypaint art of stars and planets on Venice Beach.
* Hiding inside the Michael Jackson sculpture at The Broad.
* Going to bed at a sensible hour.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I actually attended Space Camp when I was 9. I went to the one in Alabama. I got to be inside that thing made of 3 concentric rings that spins you around in all directions.
You should message me if
you are as freaked out as I am by the sheer number of Scientology-related buildings on or near Hollywood Blvd.
