My self-summary
Hey, thanks for visiting my profile. I guess I have pretty varied interests so I'm into things like architecture, design, and modern art. A little philosophy too.

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! :)
What I’m doing with my life
Working with a startup--we make software to help people understand the stuff they read.
I’m really good at
being silly, coming up with crazy ideas, making rigatoni bolognese
The first things people usually notice about me
The curly hair
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
- Reading: I'm a pretty nerdy reader. I like reading about design, philosophy, political theory, science, theology, as well as all the startup-related stuff like TechCrunch, etc.
- 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.
The six things I could never do without
It's so easy to say "God" for #1, almost as a reflex! But the truth is I really couldn't do without him. I lived the first 13 years or so of my life without God. I survived, but I'd never want to go back to that. :)

Family
Friends
Pizza
Humor
Beauty
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about things like what strange new dishes I could come up with using just what's in my refrigerator(!)
On a typical Friday night I am
These days, probably emailing business contacts until I get exhausted and then veg out on Facebook. :) But in a perfect world, I'd at least be vegging out to some nostalgic 90's TV show reruns!
