My self-summary
Smart, a little unconventional, and insatiably curious. I'm a software developer at a startup. I live for the moments each day when you see something completely new about the world: a shade of blue there was no name for, new fossil birds discovered in a coal mine, long lost cousins of the violin from Renaissance Italy. I love art museums when I see materials I never imagined. I have a game I play with my old roommate where we make up new words in foreign languages, and on weekends I like to comb neighborhoods, pretending I've never been there, for shops I've never seen before.

My perfect day would be relaxing by the water, listening to the waves go by, watching how birds fly, noshing on seafood and freshly baked bread. My favorite vacation memories are nibbling on grilled chicken in a dark alley in Tokyo, and seeing totem poles up close in Vancouver.

My Pandora playlist is ridiculously eclectic switching between country, 80s music, bluegrass, gospel, ska, and electronica. I love good food, especially exploring new styles of cooking: Burmese noodles, Uzbeki dumplings, and new ways of fusing foods from across the world.

The first things people usually notice about me
There's a dance I do when I get excited, I stand on one foot and spin my arms like clockwheels, seriously, it has to be seen.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
David Attenborough, The Wire, Arrested Development, Neil Gaiman, Jack Kirby, The Coen Brothers, Stephen Jay Gould, Brian Greenberg, Tolkien, BSG, Hiyao Miyazaki, J Michael Straczynski, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, Akira Kurosawa, Robert Heinlein, Bob Silverberg, Blade Runner, Futurama, and yes, xkcd.

In the queue: Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, Prometheus, Inception, and anything covering New York in the 70s and 80s.

Greek food, especially grilled octopus.

Japanese food, both sushi and non-sushi. Its especially fun to go to an izakaya and try everything from grilled chicken to monkfish. Its just as much fun to see how western food is made in Japan (spaghetti with shiitake mushrooms anyone?)

Dim sum, for the little moments of discovery when you find out just what is in the dumpling.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Visiting every city in the world.

How words are born.

What I would do with a 3-D printer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm afraid of jellyfish. Other people think they're pretty, I get weirded out by them
The two of us
