I'm a mathematician and an economist with a penchant for numbers, patterns, and behavioral papers. You'll often find me digressing over an academic article, or a mathematical fact.
I've lived around the world, and still go overseas a few times a year on fun adventures. If you have an interesting travel story, I'd love to hear it!
I founded, and still manage, a pro bono consulting NGO in my home country. This year marked our fifth anniversary (the party was worth the trip).
Otherwise, I'm constantly contemplating going back to school in order to learn more about Artificial Intelligence.
(Both are related.)
I like to be in control. I'm calm, cool, and collected under pressure (fitbit says I have a low resting heart rate). Because of my job, I've learned to stay patient, and absorb everything around me before making a decision. I think that this has made me a great listener.
Movies: Primer, Memento, The Lives of Others, Cinema Paradiso, The Godfather (I and II only), Scent of a Woman, Watchmen.
Music: I love concerts! Spotify-wise, it seems like my favorite artists are Max Richter, Dustin O'Halloran, Ray Charles, Jamie Cullum, Daft Punk, Rachmaninoff, Muse, Parov Stelar, and Kygo.
Shows: Game of Thrones, Hannibal, Sherlock, Breaking Bad, and House of Cards. I just watched Stranger Things and loved it.
Food: Mexican (authentic), French red wine, Belgian beer (or Imperial IPAs), and Scotch. *Note to future-self: make this less of a drinks section.
The Cantor Set.
Markov chains and their applications to human behavior.
What is time? Is it simply a measure of entropy? An evolutionary construct that helps us make sense of our sensory experiences? Does the future exist, or is it constantly being created/destroyed?
Sometimes I just go on a long walk or bike ride around the city and take photographs.
