My self-summary
I'm more complicated than the dismal wretch depicted in the OKCupid Personality rating. Alas, the multiple-choice format of the questionnaire fails to capture my revel in irony and my puckish sense of humor!
What I’m doing with my life
My interests include current affairs, environmental activism, social justice, inequality, business, economics, open-source software, sustainability, biodiversity, literature, and creative writing.
I’m really good at
I bake pretty good sourdough bread. I developed my own starter from ordinary yeast I got at the grocery store. I'd use some of the dough, bakers call it the "sponge," to start successive batches without adding additional yeast. After about the third iteration the sponge had picked up bacteria from the flour that turned it the requisite sour. Tasty!
The first things people usually notice about me
As an introvert, I'm not particularly showy, but perhaps worth getting to know anyway. Here an excellent article on the topic. Have a look; you might be an introvert too.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Obligatory reading: The New York Times and The New Yorker. It's really hard to find the time to read everything I want to read. I spend too much time on the internet.

Re: movies, I like Enigma (2001), The Imitation Game (2014), No Regrets for Our Youth (1946). I usually watch movies long after they're released.

I like dark comedy, e.g., Keeping Mum (2005). Also REALLY dark comedy: Orphan Black, BBC America.

I'm pretty omnivorous, but maybe lean a little toward Thai, Mexican, and Chinese food.
