I like creating things that positively impact the world, so I got my PhD studying how people and technology relate and now I'm involved with a startup trying to bring some cool new things to market.
I like traveling, and have had the chance to see some amazing places, like Russia and France. I got the chance to spend a summer in the UK a couple years ago, which was wonderful. The best though was Ireland--the western coast was very nice.
I've recently moved back to New York after spending several years down south for grad school. Happily it wasn't too long, so I still carry a subtle but awesome Brooklyn accent! :)
- Movies: I'm picky when it comes to movies, but I generally like action/adventure (Die Hard), really farcical comedy (Spaceballs!!), and the occasional sci-fi.
- Music: Celtic, some progressive rock, esoteric hipster British Isles stuff, some 80's pop, jazz.
- Food: As for food, I like the seriously ethnic stuff--authentic Chinese food, serious Polish Borscht, etc.
