My self-summary
I'm an engineer who appreciates art and music.
I have worked in teaching and research.
I enjoy most art, live music, literature and plays, non-fiction reading, and Buddhist writing and art.
I have lived in and near New York City most of my life and near Boston years back except for graduate school in the midwest.
I enjoy the outdoors, the parks in New York and the countryside all around.
I seem to be INTP on the Myers-Briggs criteria, which is consistent with analytical, intuitive, and introspective tendencies.
I poke around the NYT almost daily, Corriere Della Sera every chance I can, and books and articles on cognition, emotions, Buddhism, science, art, and engineering regularly.
What I’m doing with my life
Engineering

And it's important to me to spend time to practice getting better at being present now, thinking and thoughtful, with myself and others.
I’m really good at
Learning, teaching which is really only helping others to learn for themselves, measures of diplomacy and negotiation from the point of view of what is needed to be accomplished..
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My other reading interests -other than professional- include a fascination with the Civil War -it's political history and political science, Machiavelli -who appears to be quite the proponent of citizenship in a republic, biographies, and political history, including Long Walk to Freedom, The Power Broker, The Ungovernable City. I also enjoy Cannery Row, What Would MacGyver Do, Corriere della sera, Macbeth, The Iceman Commeth, A Moon for the Misbegotten...

The Producers, The Twelve Chairs, Cinema Paradiso, My Favorite Architect, Bogart movies, many Johnny Depp films, Nicholson - most films, 7 Samurai, Magnificent 7 (original), 7 Psychopaths, The Unforgiven

Northern Exposure, L&OCI,

Jazz, Blues, Latin, "World," Classical...

What we have here? is failure to communicate.

New York isn't nearly as big a city as it pretends to be.

Russia is a riddle wrapped in...
The six things I could never do without
Learning, good eating habits and guidance, teaching when it is appropriate, being active, guidance on being present, interesting ideas.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm intersted in politics and in science, particularly astronomy and cognition. Overlap between cognition and some Buddhist thought is interesting as well. Nutrition and doing it tasty while promoting health is something I'm dedicated to.
